Topamaz side effects

Posted by Jemi Brown on June 13, 2001, at 15:09:04

Has anyone had any out of the ordinary side effects with topamax. I've been on topamax since april. i'm still on dilantin as well. i'm up to 100mg in the morning and 100 mg at night. i'm tolerating the drowsiness (mostly in the early morning hours), but the other day I had a spell that I'm not sure(and neither is my doctor) what it is. My mouth started drawing together. the muscles were very tight and constricted. it lasted for about 7 hours. I thought it was a reaction from topamax. i had been drinking a milk shake and my mouth started tingling (it has happened before), and then it started drawing. But my doctor said it wasn't from the medicine, it didn't act like a seizure, and it didn't have all the symptoms of a pin stroke. The following day I was in my car and all of a sudden I felt like I was going 200 mph. I started getting sick I felt like I was going to fast. I thought maybe i had zoned out thinking about something else and accelerated the gas, but when i looked down, i had decreased my speed to 45 mph. I looked out the window to see if if appeared to me that other cars were moving at that speed, but it was just me. I pulled over on the side of the road and stopped. Once the motion of the car stopped, the feeling of going that fast stopped as well. It was a very frightening experience. I have seizures, but have not had any for over a year. My license have not been taken away, but after that experience I'm not sure about driving. Has anyone else on topamaz experienced anything like this?
