Well. I want to throw in my 'TWO CENTS" worth. Topomax has been a dream drug for me once I got through the initial phase in part getting used to the drug itself and the dosage. I rarely have more than two migraine in a year anymore. The one I have right now is due to the fact that I let my prescription run out and didn't get it filled for four days!! Bad idea but definitely my mistake! I certainly won't do that again! But, it has truly helped my life become liveable again.
