I just started low dose Topamax myself, 25mg at bedtime, moving to 50mg in about 5 days and if needed to 75mg max.

I'm taking Topamax because Neurontin failed and because it also has a once daily dosing. The only thing that made my anxiety worse was that warning about possible gluacoma and eye damage, which I'm sure is rare and from what I've read only occured in epileptic patients at high doses, but I'm the type with such high anxiety that even when my doctor tells me at such low doses not to worry, my mind starts to panic!

Anyway, so far so good. I was also worried about the possible "cognitive impairment" but at such low dose don't think I'll have to much to worry about. Let me know how it works for you, positive or negative and I will do the same.
