Hi, all. I started taking Topamax over a year ago in June. Immediately, I started getting relief. I don't think it works as well now as it did in the beginning, however. My question is.......those that take it, how many turn into complete idiots? I understand that it has nicknames such as Dopamax and Stupimax. I'm a blonde anyway, which already goes against me, lol.
I had the "finger and hand/feet tingles" as a beginning side effect, which finally
went away. But the higher the dose I take, the dumber I get. I recently asked my primary if there was anything else out there yet. He said, "No".
Also, I've been reading through the posts about folks getting headaches after waking. My headaches tend to do different things in different phases, all of their own choosing, no less. Lately, I would wake up and 5 or 10 minutes it would set in. Mine are considered chronic mild to moderate with severe time to time.
