I have been back on Topamax now, for precisely 9 days straight. I decided to give it another go after my neurologist was visibly annoyed that I gave it up so quickly, and had no other good treatment options. I took 25mg before bed for 7 days, now I've had 50mg before bed for two days.
I'm taking it for constant 24/7 "head pressure." My neuro calls it a chronic daily headache or a NDPH. So far I can't say I've noticed anything too dramatic. No relief yet. On the negative side, I have noticed stomach upset, a lot of acid indigestion and--get this--excessive belching. I've also noticed a bit of apathy, disorientation and low energy during the day. Has anyone else noticed these effects?
I'm taking the generic from Camber Pharmace by the way.
