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!

I have your pretty run of the mill fears and anxieties that are ever present. Thank you BP and anxiety disorder. Appreciate ya. But my totally irrational fear is roaches. Pinché cucarachas. The big ones that come from the trees and sometimes fly. Fuck that shit- those bastards terrify me. I’ve had some pretty nasty encounters. No thank you sir. So the hubs has been very ill. Much better as...
