I began a Topamax regime the second week of Feb. and was at full strength March 9th. I am prone to kidney stones having thrown about
20 since 1972. On March 23rd I reported lower back pain to the doctors nurse who dismissed it. The pain got so much worse I could hardly stand from a sitting position and once up I didn't want to sit. Anyway then came the eye pain..stabbing in the right eye with alot of follow up pressure and tearing. Got the nurses attention. Today I went in for tests...elevated RBC and WRC in urine - I'm off Topamax and on Lyrica. Saddly Topamax was the only drug that worked to relieve 80% of the pain in my head since 1982. I've been wearing sunglasses both day and night and was finally able to take them off in the evenning and put 60 watt bulbs in the lamps in our house. Best of luck with Topamax, it works for a lot of people, just didn't for me.
