Working / Worked
I took this a while ago for migraines and they just piggy backed it for bipolar as well. It worked until I was taking it for quite some time and I could never think of the right words and just had a lot of issues communicating things properly. I felt like an idiot.

currently use 200 mg

This medication worked fantastically for a few months and then just stopped.

This medication helped greatly, but due to abnormal blood tests, my PCP pulled me off Topamax.
Working / Worked
This kept my migraines under control. However, I have been taken off this medication because of abnormal blood tests. My PCP believes Topamax is the cause.
This was a very effective medication, however, I have been taken off of it because of abnormal blood tests which indicate the medication as the cause.
Topamax did a lot to stabilize my moods and I would recommend it for anyone with Borderline. However I have a lot of physical health issues and have been taken off this medication because of abnormal blood tests.
An awful medicine for me. Made me angry and I cried all the time.
Working / Worked
Awful for me. Did not work and made me very angry and sad.
