Hi! I'm new to this website and am new to Topomax which my neurologist has me on for severe acute migraine syndrome. I have had a migraine headache since the middle of October...some days are better than others. I have had migraine headaches occasionally since I was in my middle 20's and now I am 51 so they aren't totally new to me. The doctor has had me slowly increase my dosage of Topomax to help prevent the side effects. I am currently at 75 mg's a day building to 100 mg's a day which is where I think he wants me to top out; however, I still have a headache at all times although the pain intensity has decreased though I still have some severe headaches at times. The side effects I have noticed are my face breaking out, I feel very tired and listless at all times, have severe insomnia, my tastes have changed, and I am either very hot or very cold. I have noticed a slight decrease in my appetite, but nothing major and I haven't lost any weight which I'd really like to do. Am just looking for more info and insight into this drug. Thanks!
