hi, I am
seeing the doctor this friday, am on 300mg of topamax, I really want to say on it, but I dont think my husband wants me to stay on it as by moods are still roller coastering, if fact he is taking the day off on friday to take to to the doctor. I wish I could get rid of these sores on my tongue..I am so afraid they are going to put me back on depakote. Anyway I lost nearly 40 pounds!! I am down to 103pnds.
