In reply to Re:TOPAMAX FOR PAIN, posted by bluecat on August 3, 2001, at 20:50:25

I've been on Topamax for the last 3 months, starting at 25mg, 2 times a day, for the first month, 50mg, 2 times a day, for the second month, and currently 100mg, 2 times a day, for the third month.I was diagnosed with petit mal epilepsy and I had migrine for up to 4 days a week. I've been free of the migrine for about two months now in for the first time since high scool so it's great, but the side effects is a bit worrying. I'm experiencing numbness, needles- and pinns feeling both hands hand feet, but more so on the right side. Some times weird tastes of soft drinks. A Shhhhhh sound in my ears. I have a very shorth attention span (which was'nt the case before) and trouble remembering things. Sometimes I have trouble finding the right words to express myself. I think the idea, but I cannot say what I want to. I also have a problem studying. Friends and family also complain that I am became agressive.
Are these side-effects here to stay or do they disappear after a while. I tried to see the doctor again, but I can only get an appointment in three months time. His assistant told me to hang in there until then. My job is depending on me being sharp and being able to think on my feet. Three months might be too long to wait.
