    Duration taken: Two years or more
  • Went from 4-5 migraines a week to 1-2 a month. Have the tingling and did experiencing weight loss; tingling in feet comes and goes, never completely gone for years now. Overall would take the 'pins and needles' over a migraine.

  • Caused abdominal pain, diarrhea and weight loss for the first month. Caused cognitive problems - couldn't concentrate and would completely blank on certain words, specifically names.

  • Worked great for my migraines but the side effects out weighed the pros. Tingling all over, loss of appetite, I couldn't taste and anything carbonated tasted flat, and on and off brain fog.

  • Pros: 50 mg Topamax per day seemed to make my 3-6 migraines per month shallower, shorter, and less painful. I also lost weight - nice! However, I stopped taking it after a year because it was making me too tired and depressed.

  • Definitely reduced my appetite, but for me it's absolutely worth it for the almost perfect migraine prevention.

  • When I started taking Topamax I was only on 50mg a day but after being on it for over a year I need to take 100mg for it to work well for me.

  • I take it in the evening, since it makes me sleepy - and since I have to take it daily, at the same time, I just synced it with my birth control pill. Easy-peasy. So far it's drastically reduced my migraines. Tingly feet, though.

  • Felt absolutely terrible for first week on this stuff. After that, I felt completely normal again. Kick-started my stalled weight loss.

  • Withdrawal from this med is really really tough. I considered going on disability because of the side effects and withdrawal effects. Made me stupid, lose words halfway through sentences, and made my depression WAY worse
