I'm so glad to find this string of posts. I started topamax about ten days ago, on 25 mg, then on 50 mg after about 5 days. I felt so great after the first few days, no appetite, and no desire for alcohol! no side effects. what a wonder drug, no head aches. Then the nurse told me to start one in the morning and one at night, and i did, and that's when the terrible heartburn started. I am burping like crazy, icky bile kind of burps which make me feel nauseous. So it's not just that nasty taste in the mouth, but the constant burning. So I began taking them both at night, and taking zantac. It seems to be a little better, but I still am burping, not a bad, but bad enough where it's burning, and feel still nauseated and am wondering if anyone else went through this? Am crossing fingers either it goes away OR can you take something with it at the same time? Can I take zantac at the same time, or calcium magnesium supplement at the same time? I'm wondering if anyone has found anything that would work and I know ginger ale and seltzer used to work for my stomach, but I read that those are horrible with this medication. I've been reading Zonegran has many less side effects, but I'm willing to wait a little longer with this before changing. if anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears! (all heartburn too!) Thanks!
