hello all. i posted here several months ago inquiring about topomax's side effects. i check back regularly, and i have practically every side effect that you all have. i am currently taking 300mg. /day for bi polar disorder. it has worked wonderfully, and the side effects have pretty much subsided. my binge eating has all but gone away. i have not lost any weight, but my weight is steady and under control. (yea!!) i wasn't overweight to begin with, so this is a victory. the tingly feelings are few and far between, and the stupids have faded. one thing i am curious about that i haven't heard anyone mention......
i used to crave junk like the dickens. chips, cake, ice cream, crackers. if it was processed, i wanted it. now, all i want is freah food. fresh fruit, veggies, oh God, i would kill for avacado, or whole milk yogurt!! i go to the whole foods market...i would never go there before. my kids get a candy bar, and i get a banana. and i WANT this! anyone else experiencing this kind of stuff? it's crazy, i tell ya. i just don't know what to think. i go out to eat, and i am voluntarily NOT eating the deep fried stuff, and I DO NOT want to eat at mcdonalds....and that used to be my favorite place. it makes me sick to think of that place now. i would rather stay home and prepare a nice bean burrito.
there, anybody get what i mean???
ok. i hope that made sense. best luck to all of you. i know i kind of left the subject. i'm sorry. happy trails! heather.
