Not sure about what I would do in your work situation, but I loved the Topomax. I took it for about 6 weeks and it helped my migraines so much - however, I started having floaters and at times they would be so bad, I couldn't see - my eye pressure increased and vision was so blurry I couldn't see my computer, so I had to stop it. I was put on Lyrica - not so much for migraines but I also have shooting nerve pain in both my legs from a car accident a long time ago - I hated that medication - after a month of being on it I gained 25 pounds and my weight just kept going up - I had to stop it. I didn't really see a difference while on it - thank God, because that is one medication that I refused to take any longer.
