> I was taking 100 mgs(and still on my way up in dosage) of Topomax. But, my pdoc has just stopped prescribing Topomax completely, because of a medical conference that he recently attended. So, I'm on Seroquel for the long run, I guess. :) Take care....N
> > What kinds of doses are working for you ladies? I've seen everything from 100 mg per day to 600 mg per day in the studies, but the studies also indicate that the higher doses make people cognitively dull. I have only one patient on it now (at 100 mg) and she's still got a little bit in the way of hypomania so we're slowly going to go up to 150 mg. She's very bright and in graduate school so I'm being cautious because I don't want to dull her intellect or creativeness, but at the same time when she's manic she doesn't get a whole lot of useful activities done either. I'm hoping we can find a happy medium with the Topamax.

I hav sone information on Topamax.. If the titration period is done at a very very slow rate (starting @ 25mg and inc @ 25mg per week the side effects are lessened
