I've had daily migraines since I was ten. Started first on elavil but had to keep upping the dose so then I was switched to Topamax in high school. It's been wonderful and really cut down my migraines. I did experience weight loss and have tingling occasionally in my fingers. Occasionally I forget a word or get spacey but ill take that over daily horrible migraines. I'm 24 now, pretty well migraine free (*knock on wood*) and don't plan on going off. I'm only on 50 mg but whenever I try to taper further they come back with a vengeance.
Also ill add I do drink a little despite knowing it's not advised and it does make me very sleepy and a real lightweight. Go slow and be safe if you choose to do this.
