I have been on Topomax now since January of 2003 with no side effects. At first it was a secondary med in conjunction with Tegritol which was causing enormous side effects. I have since stopped using tegritol with amazing improvements although the damage it has caused is irreversible.

I have stated in this forum repeatedly that it is vital to start slowly and titre up slowly with Topomax to allow your system to adjust to the medication and to avoid side effects.

While it was prescribed for epilepsy and migraine, I also lost over one hundred pounds that I had gained because of side effects of medications...
at the present time I wear a size two... amazing really

still no side effects unless one considers the fact that I am almost seizure free and have not had a migraine in almost four years...
freedom indeed
