My doctor recently started me on Topamax for my violent mood swings and chronic depression which I have suffered since I was 13 (I am 23 now.) I have been hospitalized several times, been on numerous medications, and seen many doctors in my time, and it is my experience that doctors rarely speak to you like a human being, or give you any information about what it is that you are taking. When I got home from my appointment, I looked up Topamax, and learned it is prescribed for epilepsy....I was just wondering if anyone out there could explain to me how it works for stabilizing my moods? Since I am on State insurance, I am lumped into what is called "Med group", where my doctor goes around the room and doles out prescriptions, so I get about 2 minutes to talk to him about anything. Also, I have been experiencing severe back pain since starting this med. At times I can barely get up from a sitting this normal? And has Topamax worked well for anyone out there? Thanks.
