Heres my story.
I went to family doctor for migraines. And was precribed topomax. I started off at 25 mg a week. And was told to increase dosage until i got to 100 mg. After two weeks i noticed quite a difference the headaches went away. However. Tingling sensation in my hands and feet, food taste differant, I had a hard time remembering daily routines.Two months into the medication i had a seizure in my sleep .ambulance was called.being that it was the first time in my life so they mistake it for panick attack. Took a visit to neurology decribed what had happened and the doctor says ok "im going to put you on our best seizure medication Topomax".. I replied " well im on Tompax for migraines i have some at home already".

So heres my problem...its been a year now i been to several nuerologist and im telling them i have never had any history of epilepsy until taking Topomax. If i miss one dose i have a siezure back to back. Not to mention other side effects: hair loss , angry, saying phrases over and over, walking in circles.. If there are other cases similar to mines please discuss and let everyone you know Dont take Topomax

Did they check your ammonia levels? Hyperammonemic Encephalopathy is a condition caused by some seizure medications.
