Thanks for taking the time to respond. Everyone in my family wears glasses or contacts and I have better than 20/20 vision, so I rarely go for a check up, which is probably something I need to start doing regardless of what meds I'm taking because I just turned 40 and it's probably been 5 years since an eye exam because I have had no definite reason to go.

So you mainly take Topamax for what it is prescribed for, seizures, then off label for migraines. I'm mainly taking it for anxiety and occasional migraines. My main hope of course is it's effect on calming my rapid fire anxiety. Has it helped calm you in respect to use for anxiety? It doesn't sound like anxiety is an issue with you but could you see Topamax being effective for anxiety?

I know everyone reacts different but am hoping to receive some positive results from Topamax after total disappointment from Neurontin. The main reason I've heard people never feel results from Topamax is because they get impatient and bail out to soon before the med gets a chance to work. So far I've not had any side effects at all, maybe a little agitation but just the first few days.

Did you experience initial side effects every two weeks when you increased dose?
