I have been on Topamax since I can remember..[I'm 22]. I have epilepsy and migraines, and one summer when I was 16 I decided that I was sick and tired of taking my medication so I did the same thing. I stopped taking everything else and weaned myself off of the Topamax. I'm taking a much higher dose than you are but my side effects were heinous. I ended up with horrendous migraines almost daily, vomiting, and an outbreak of seizures. I'm sure the side effects would be different but if you believe that you would like to wean yourself off of your medication maybe put a call into your doctor, or just wait until finals are over and you can put the time into calming down. Definitely do not do it cold turkey, that's not at all intelligent. Promise.
