I have migraines and crohn's disease. I was having a two year remisssion from my crohn's when my migraines started getting unbearable. My doctor put me on 50 mg topamax a day , which was great for the migraines, but 2 weeks after being on topamax, I started a flare-up of my crohn's disease. At first, I didn't connect the two , but after taking both prednisone for several weeks and having a remicade treatment, I can't stop the flare-up and I am starting to think it's the topamax. Did anyone ever experience anything similar or does anyone have both illnesses? I would appreciate any help on this because I don't want to give up topamax but I want to get rid of my crohn's.
