I just starting taking topamax six days ago and just upped my dose to 50mg yesterday.  I am suppose to be working toward 100mg to treat migraines.  The first day I was sooo tired but that has somewhat passed, now sodas are gross, and my eye lids feel like they weight 100 pounds (literally)  I am fighting to keep them open and I look like I have droopy eyes or I am "out of it".  My eyes somewhat hurt. 
 
Anyone had this and will it pass?

I too started off with the low dosage of topamax and was so tired and out of it. I felt like a zombie, now matter how much sleep I got. My doctor put my on Cymbalta, which is an antidepressant that is also used for chronic pain, and it has helped me. I am not so tired. it has changed my mood as well! I havent noticed much change with my headaches though, but it may take awhile.

I do not know that I am actually tired but feel pressure in my eyes that causes them to droop. I am also having tingling in my feet.
