I have not tried zonegran, but when I was first starting on topamax, my coworkers friend was taking zonegran b/c she couldn't tolerate topamax. It was working for her. That coworker has left so I don't have any information on how it's doing but I've always kept it in the back of my mind. It's been about 5 years and now I'm on 400mg of topamax and I think I've outlived the usefullness of it. bummer. I renewed my rx b/c I'm too busy to go to the doc right now, but I think next time I'm gonna ask about something else - LOL, hopefully something that doesn't require lots of blood work and doesn't make you gain weight! And zonegran fits that picture I think. I know depakote makes people hungry and makes you gain weight! yuck!!!!!
