I was on topamax for two years, and hated the many terrible side effects (and ended up with kidney stones, as well). While on the meds, I did get that scalp pain your talking about, but it wasn't too bad. My neuro had me taking fiorecet while on the topamax to help when I still got the migraines. It did not take the migraine away, but took the edge off so I was still able to function if I had to. I also had migranol nose spray, but could only take it if I was at home and had no obligations, since it would knock me out. My current neuro started me back on the topamax with several other meds to help with pain and a different type of nasal spray.
