You should ask your psychiatrist why he or she is having you try Topamax before trying Ritalin, Adderall and Dexadrine. These drugs are approved for ADHD. Topamax is not.

There must be a good reason. Topamax is only approved as an anti-siezure medication (at least, in the U.S.).

Chances are, once you stabilize at a certain dose level for a few days, some of the negative effects should stop. But, you might get them again each time you increase the dose.

Good luck.
