I have recently started taking the extended release version of Topamax for migraines and slightly increased intracranial pressure. About one month ago I started on 25 mg for a week and then 50 for three weeks. The first three weeks were pretty awful with headaches being worse than usual. Then they appeared to level out.
The neurologist then increased it to 75 mg on Thursday. I have been incredibly tired, nauseous, and have had bad headaches again. is this common for adjusting to the Topamax? I did read on some other sites that sometimes it gets worse before gets better, I just really wanted this to work. The neurologist and I were both hoping that it would also maybe help me lose some weight.
Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
Nana’s cancer is continuing to spread. The chemo isn’t working. Papa wants her to keep getting chemo. He isn’t ready to let go. I am at peace with her pending death. She will no longer be in pain. Today my therapist suggested I have a conversation with Nana. Ask questions, share memories, reminisce. But I don’t know what to ask or say. We were always close but never talked intimately. So...
So I think I need something for anxiety. I accidentally overdosed during a panic attack on my anxiety meds, but that was years ago when I was less stable. I think I have ptsd and gad but I'll talk to my pdoc about it. Any ideas on a good anti-anxiety med?
