Currently taking with 2 other antidepressants. Physician monitored as needs change periodically.

Topamax works wonders as a preventative for my migraines.
10 mg. 23 x day. It works the best of all the antiinflammatory antidepressants and Alzheimer drugs Ive been given. There arent many side effects getting on or off.

it was not effective enough

I originally took Topamax for my epilepsy, but while I was on it I was 110 lbs consistently and had no problems maintaining weight. Unfortunately when it was deemed that I no longer needed the Topamax I gained over 50 lbs in 2 months, and over 70 more lbs in the following years.
