To Robert Blackburn: When I first started topamax my husband commented in a wondering kind of voice that I was so "hostile" and that's exactly how I felt. Your wife started at 50 mgs rather than at the usual 25 which may be part of the problem. If she increases her dose at all, please caustion her to take it slow and easy. I've found by trial and error that if I go up by no more than 25 mg increments every three weeks I don't get as crabby, but even then I can feel the urge to snap hard to curb sometimes. It seems especially difficult to remain sane in the second week of a new dose. The first time I titrated up I didn't know what the hell was going on and nobody told me. You guys aren't alone in this and I guess it's the norm for Topamax users. Things do even out eventually.
