Loved it. I felt "normal." Had to be weaned off because of severe nausea.
Working / Worked
Life changing.
Working / Worked
Its been helping with the headaches as well as the myoclonus quite a lot and some of the shaking in my hands but not with any of the head tremors. The head tremors are the worse because my teeth chatter and I have a hard time focusing and Im told Topamax doesnt help with focus issues eithers.
Working / Worked
This greatly reduced the number and frequency of attacks, however I have suffered memory loss and a hard time focusing for any length of time. I was on this medication from 2005-2013. I tapered myself off at the beginning of 2014.
Working / Worked
I take this for migraines that are related to stress. It is a lifesaver. I was having 16 or more a month and because of the TMJ the doctors had me on lots of antidepressants. All I needed was topamax to get my life back to functioning so that I could focus on the jaw pain instead of my headaches.
