Not everybody has positive comments, only negatives..
I've tried every pain killer/medication going..
Having migraines is the bane of my life,
having experienced them for the past 5 years
its got the point where I will try ANYTHING!
to stop them from taking over my life..
I was on Topimax starting from 25mg for a week,
that didn't work so i went up and up until I got to the dose which worked!
i think it was 75mg/100mg
This medicine was a god send, the best thing i've ever tried,
the whole 3-4 months, I didn't experience 1 headache!
My hands and feet tingled slightly, carbonated drinks didn't taste the greatest
and I lost weight, but that's not a bad thing!
The worst thing was the 'depression' I don't like to say depression as it was false,
but I was constantly emotional, and was very sad and lifeless.
which is so unlike me!
I also had a few confused days, but I would take those confused days and the pins and needles over headaches any day!
Eventually the depression got to much and I had to force myself to come off it,
the headaches didn't return for 3 weeks, but came back with a vengeance!
I tried topimax again 3 months later, hoping that with my new knowledge I could win, instead of depression this time,I had even more painful headaches during it , so tables turnt. I came off them again!
6 months later, I am now a week into my 3rd Topimax try,
Hoping for the best and staying optimistic !
If it doesn't work, I will give up on this one forever.
It is does, its a success!
1 tip, keep an open mind, and try things for yourself!
Sometimes its mind over matter with things people write, and don't believe everything you hear! :)
