Hi and welcome!!!
I'm sorry you are having so much trouble...I was on 400MG of Topamax daily and did not have the same side effects. If you think its not working enough for you and causing more side effects than you can stand, tell your doctor and adjust the dosage or switch to something else.
(tingling in arms and legs, change in taste and "losing words" are all common side effects. As far as the joint pain I think it does happen but is a little less common.)
Call your doctor and at least tell them about
everything going on and see what they say.
