Hey there, this is my first post, but I also have the combination of epilepsy and migraine.  Since I already take anti-convulsants for grand mal epilepsy, the addition of Topamax for the migraine is problematic.  Hate Topamax, makes me fuzzy, confused and in general does not mix with my other meds.  Specifically speech disturbances, which are a deal breaker. Both epilepsy and headaches began after severe head trauma at age 33.

How ling have you been on the topomax? Eventually the brain fog and other issues with topomax do go away - I've been on it for awhile and I had some wicked brain fog at first which wasn't good trying to finish my degree but give it a chance if you haven't been on it for long.
