In reply to Topamax and Vision HELP!, posted by MrChris on October 24, 2001, at 11:25:18

Hi,

I don't have experience on topomax, but a lot
of the anti-convulsants including lamictal and
neurontin have had effects on my vision. there
could be potentiating interactions with the
neurontin and topomax. Anyways, my blurry vision
usually goes away fast. Wellbutrin was the only
anti-depressant that caused blurry vision. Curiously
for me blurry vision was a precursor symptom to
complete depression remission for the few times I
was fortunate to have this happen.

Others hopefully have more info about dangerous
blurry vision. I now this is a severe concern
with a med called vigabatrin, but haven't heard
it about topomax. My doctor told me kidney stones
was more a concern on topomax (although those can
be blasted out of your system).

What are you taking the topomax for?

regards,
john


> Hi. I'm on Zyprexa 10mg, Neurontin 900mg, and my pdoc just added Topamax 50mg for weight control. I've read some disturbed reports about cases were glaucoma was caused by topamax -- I am noticing changes in my vision, should I be concerned? things aren't fuzzzy -- they just look different, it's hard to describe. Things are clear, but different. how do I know when I should be concerned? what exactly does blurred vision mean? does it mean things become fuzzy? less clear?
