I just added Topamax to my cocktail a week ago. I am currently taking imipramine, Zoloft (SSRI), Lamictal, amantadine, and Abilify along with the Topamax. I started with 25mg. I'll probably wait a few more days before moving up to 50mg. From what I understand, it is much better to avoid the appearance of the cognitive side effects that Topamax can produce by titrating very slowly rather than to titrate quickly and wait for them to disappear.

I have bipolar depression.
