   Thanks 4 reply, wish I could say how long I was on Topamax...but it was foggy,,lol,
   Seriously though, it reacts somehow with my Dilantin which I must take for epilepsy.  I
   have begun several times and never made it longer than a couple of months before
   abandoning the effort. During those times (which I am sure were not long enough to say
   whether they were helping), the side effects progressively worsened. The worse of which
   for me was the speech disturbances. So bad on occasion, I answered my phone and
   realized no sound was coming from my mouth as I mouthed hello and yes I am here.
   Disconcerting at best, very problematic, and definitely a deal breaker. I always began
   with the absolute lowest dosages, and at the suggestion of my doctor, even used the
   sprinkle form on my food in case that might be better. Even though I have no real con-
   formation, my contention is that the addition of a second anticonvulsant to my Dilantin
   somehow goes awry.  Will probably try again though, not many option! idea LOVE TO KNOW
