I read the recent thread on Topamax. I started on Topamax this past monday 7/24. I started on 25 mg at night. I am supposed to titrate up to 100mg. I am supposed to take 25 mg in Am and 25 MG in PM starting this monday 7/31.
I have definately noticed a decrease in my migraines. I also have CNS Lupus/vasculitis. There are alot of migraine meds I can't take because of my history of vasculitis.
They now feel I am having some sort of simple partial seizures. I had an abnormal EEG recently.
I have been extremely sleepy and fatigued since I started the Topomax. I also have the word finding issues at times and sometimes feel spacey.(Pardon this post if it is full of typo's LOL)
The CNS Lupus also causes fatigue and a brain fog kind of feeling as well. Some of the meds I am on for the lupus such as the low dose prednisone and cellcept also cause fatigue too.
I don't want to give up on the Topamax yet. I am just so scared that the symptoms will get worse as the dose goes up.
Those of you that have had success, how slow did you titrate up?
