Ok, so embarrassingly I love coke and while I've been on topamax, only 5 days, it tastes disgusting. Which is actually depressing me that I can't drink it. Sprite tastes marginally ok... any other soda suggestions? I'm not a coffee drinker, can not make tea to save my life and can only drink so much water. I feel so childish!!!

I started 7 days ago, used to drink lots of coke, don't care about the coke, but champagne!!! it was my drink. But I can still drink it. Both coke and champagne it just tastes weird, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. I used to drink lots of coffee now I can't drink more than 1 cup or I go crazy and my face goes numb. Good thing is I enjoy healthy foods alot more.

Hi all-
This is exactly what I was going to ask. My wife just started taking Topamax a couple weeks ago and has said sodas taste funny along with a lot of foods too.

Take care,
