I have not been well the past few days.  I thought it was due to a new prescription, but now it has moved outside of that realm of possibilities.  I am currently dealing with other health issues that have left me extremely low on iron and borderline anemic.  I have a surgical procedure scheduled in 6 days and therefore, I must simply deal with the weakness until after it is done.
I have chronic migraine syndrome. I ran out of Topamax 3 days ago and thought it was no big deal until today.  I take 200 mg a day.  I didn't have it refilled due to financial issues.  Now that I have been paid, the pharmacy isn't open again until Monday.  I have blurred vision, sensitivity to light, nausea and a feeling behind my forehead that I can honestly say is more than normal dizzy.  It almost feels as if I am trying very hard to stay conscious.  The feeling is that my eyes are pulling into a cross and I cannot see clearly without great effort and strain.  Bending over or vomiting causes me to see stars.
I do not want to go to the ER, but I am also afraid to go to sleep tonight.  I know that I am sick elsewhere in my body and have a temp of 101.  Not sure if it is a combination of the two.
The only thing I can think of to get me through until Monday would be possibly increasing my dosage of xanax.  Any advice or suggestions?
