Not to nag or anything, Michelle, but Kat knows what she's talking about and so do I (did I say brag)? Go back, go back to 25 mgs, and don't increase for two weeks and maybe not then!
Howcome you're taking the Topamax, anyway? If it's for weight loss, it may not work for you. I only lost ten pounds and that might be because it was summertime and I was living on ice water. Food is good, but Topamax isn't the magic bean for losing weight. Almonds are a good idea.
Kat mentioned taking an increase in the morning when you get to a certain point--for example, you could take 25 mgs in the evening and 25 in the morning to increase to 50 when it's time. Not Now.
Kat, congratulations on getting off the clozabam and back to photography, as well as taking charge of your medical life (in this arena). Emergency appointments indeed. This time last year you were not a happy camper.
I'm a week into new bottles of serzone (generic) and Topamax and have to be walking the bottom rings of hell--there's a definite difference in my mood and behavior since I opened those meds. Crabby and depressed and snappish and sullen and annoyed and uncharming. Bipolar II is showing its little face. It always does in the summer but I can usually "be nice." There's something different about the pills.
I am learning Russian, which is good.
