Hi I am from the Crohn's board and also have anxiety and depression.
Recently my doctor prescribed Topamax 50mg one at night for my anxiety/mood swings. I wanted to know if anyone here was taking it, and if so, what side effects they have experienced. I have only taken one dose so far and it made me very drowsy, dizzy, dry mouth, disorientated, anxious and I have no appetite. I am nervous to take it again, although my doc says I must persevere as apparently the side effects while dissapate over time.
Any thoughts/ advice on this would really be appreciated.
God please grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,courage to change the things I can and the Wisdom to know the difference.
