Back in the summer i was taking a Topiramate dose of 50mg in the morning and 50mg at night.It worked very well and never had any cluster migraines hit me at all.Now that its Nov I want to see if the cluster headaches will still hit me,maybe only a summertime thing or possibly gone into a remission mode.Anyway,I have read you do not just quit this drug once you have been on it.For 5 days now I have reduced my daily 100mg to 50mg with no headaches,and today I will try only 1 25mg per day for 5 days and see how it goes.Is 5 days long enough when reducing the mg of the drug ,or is 2 to 3 days good enough.Any input on weening off Topiramate appreciated..

I highly recommend that you do not try this.

Talk to your prescribing doc first.
