Help! I've been on Topamax and according to the warnings it says it "may" cause constipation. I have IBS with severe constipation; I've had it for 12 years. It's a constant battle. What's the word on Topamax causing constipation - is this a reality for some of you? Anyone in this forum taking it or have taken it in the past (or know of anyone who has) and has this problem? I think I need to switch to something else because it is making me miserable.

I've been on Topamax for several years and my tummy issues didn't start until last August, so it is possible that it can cause your issues, but it could be coincidence as well.
