> No, I'm not off of it...still taking 200mg every day! Most of my cognitive probs have died down alot. I still get goofy trying to come up with words/names a lot, but it has not affected my overall intellectual ability (which weren't much to begin wit!)
> The sleepiness was a real major problem for me too, especially during the first month. It did eventually go away, at least for me. But I take Effexor, which is very stimulating (for me, anyway) so that helps me alot.
> It IS very confusing...I don't know what to do at this point either. Topa seems to be working, but also feels like I might need an increase in dosage, and/or the pdoc wants to amp it up w/lithium..... Like you said, it's so confusing!!!


I've been taking 400 mg. of Topamax (200 in am and 200 in pm)+ 75 mg. of Effexor and just started 200 mg. Provigil. I have had great success with the 400mg of Stupidmax minus the fact that an hour after I take it you can't tell I have a Masters in Education, although I think Provigil has helped in that area. I am starting to get my headaches back and that definitely
must be from the Provigil. I did not know that could be a side effect but that has been the only change in meds.

By the way, it doesn't seem that any of you take this combo of meds for anxiety disorders, cyclic mood disorders, OCD, overactive cingulate....any ideas???
