> After reading more and more postings today, I have learned a lot. I also have been doing a search, and found the most informative website!

This is an interesting site indeed. Thanks for telling us about it...
One of the things that I noticed and I am quoting here, is the warning about stopping the medication:
"Do not abruptly stop taking Topamax®. If the drug isn't withdrawn gradually, seizures may be caused, even in patients who do not normally experience seizures."

That part I can certainly reinforce. I had to stop taking the topomax and the Tegretol ten days ago because of tests that are scheduled for later today... and the seizures began within 24 hours...

The article also points out that side effects are not known to last for any length of time...

"Some side effects, such as fatigue, are more likely to surface with high doses of Topamax®. Others occur regardless of dosage. While many tend to disappear after the first 8 weeks of therapy,"

This is another statement that I can affirm... any of the side effects I encountered were of a short duration and life returned to normal within a few weeks... and I don't think it took two months to reach that stage...

Wish I could say the same for Tegretol...
