I've been suffering from what I am told are Migraines now for a few years on and off - they occassionally take the form of the " curl in a ball and go in a dark room " kind which I always thought were the only kind.  But mine take two forms - one starts on my right side and consists of eye, jaw neck should and back - if I don't catch that one with immetrex it can get much worse but the other just focuses around the muscles of my eyes and gets no better, or no worse, unless I take something.  I recently started birth control again which brings them back full swing and since I'd been having some form evey day I was sent to a neurologist who prescribed Topomax.  I've felt kinda ick this winter but have noticed ( looking back ) that I've been more anxious since on this medication and more blah.  Last week, I made it up to 125 and have since been a MESS.  I've had a panic attack, I cry all the time - just having a really hard time.  He told me to go back down to 100 and I did and I go back to him soon but I plan on going armed with my own research and hopefully advice from others so I can make the best decision for me.  I know anxiety is a side effect - yet not terribly common. In my mind, my body is telling me that is bad - if he adds an anti depressant onto it, that is just something else I am worried about having to get off of.  Just in search of advice and those that may have migraine symptoms similar to mine.  Thanks to all in advance!
