OK....
I started on 100 mg. topamax at night for anxiety....then my pdoc prescribed a gradual increase of 25 mg/morning in addition to the 100/night for 4 days at a time until I reached 100 mg./morning.
 
At 25/morning and 100/night - anxiety was good.
now - at 50/morning and 100/night - anxiety is terrible!
 
I am supposed to go to 75/morning and 100/night tomorrow and I am so nervous.
 
Logically, isn't it safe to say that if I was doing great @ 25/100, I would do even better @ 50/100 and so on.......
 
Anyone have any experience with topamax? I would appreciate your stories!
Thanks

Casem,

I have no experience with this med either but for some reason there is not always a logical explanation for how and why these meds work the way they do.

I hope someone who is on the med responds.  Keep posting.

Hugs

Kitt
