Hi, Cheermom, and welcome! I do not take Topamax but I'm sure others do and will be along shortly. Here is an informative link about it, just in case you are interested.
I use ibuprofen (with food) and Tylenol for my pain. I also take malic acid and magnesium supplements that have helped me a lot with the pain and fatigue. I'll bump up the thread all about them so you can read all about them. I also use moist heat, rice bags, and light massages to help me with pain. It is also important to keep moving. Otherwise you will be stiff as a board! Walking is a wonderful exercise for fibromites.
Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread. It's the second thread at the top of the forum. There are some good links to information about fibro. There is a link to great stretching exercises that is very good and they really do help.
I'm so glad you joined us and I hope to hear more from you soon. Just read back posts. There is a world of information in them. Also, ask questions. We are here to help you live a full and enjoyable life with fibro. Have a great day!
