hi all, I take Topiramax 500mg am and 250mg pm for migrane and epilepsy, and last night I went out on a hen do, now you might be thinking, What's this got to do with migranes, well, I didn't know what else to put it under, but, let me just say, never again will I drink alcohol! Not once was I told not to drink alcohol whilst taking topamax, I had 3 glasses of wine, which I've had before taking topamax, and was totally fine, but with topamax I was, well, I can honestly say, legless, I couldn't walk, talk, I was violently sick, didn't make it to the hotel toilet cubicle,
If it wasn't for my sister in law looking after me I don't know what I would have done. I have just Googled it, cos I knew at the time something wasn't right, and it says not to drink alcohol whilst taking topamax, if increases the likelihood of seizures and makes you vomit and gives you headache!
I post this as a warning to other topamax users, my night was ruined, and had to go home early as I felt so ill. Doctors should be telling patients this information, I will be complaining to mine!
