i have been on topamax for 9 months i have had most of the side affects that come with it one really good crying spell i did not think i would come out of it but it is not like you just do it in public it just takes time for your mind to adjust to the meds.
i can tell you i would take all the side affect that i have over the daily pain of a migriane a pore quility of life any day i no longer come home and have to lay down in bed before i do anything i still have headaches they dont go away but it not a daily thing anymore.
the side affect are an adjustment but it is something worth trying iam 42 and iwsh i had found this a long time ago i remember headaches when i was 9-10 years old i feel like so much of life was spent in my head pain. talk to people, talk to your dr. read the info on topamax but if i had to try it all over again? in a heart beat.
