> I started out slowly on Topamax and so far, haven't had any noticeable side effects. I'm currently on 50 mg - 25 mg in the morning and 25 mg at night. My doctor recently increased the dosage to 100 mg - 50 mg in the morning and 50 mg at night.

> I'm wondering if going straight from 50 mg to 100 mg will be a big change...or if I'm worrying too much (I've read what a lot of you have gone through). I didn't have any problems going from nothing to 25 mg or from 25 mg to 50 mg. Does everyone have problems when increasing the dose - or is do the side effects occur only at much higher dosages? Should I go a few days at 75 mg or not worry about it and go straight to 100 mg?

TAKE IT SLOWLY>>> this is not meant to be interpreted as shouting but as speaking slowly and articulating every syllable... <s>

go up by 25 mg over a two week period...
I cannot say it often enough...
it is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
important if you want this to work.....
25 mg for two weeks then up to the next level...
if the doctor wants you at a total of 25 mg.. then go to 50 in the evening and then start at 50 in the morning... right now you are at 25 and 25... so up it to 50 at night and when it is settled and your system has adjusted... no earlier than 2 weeks....
start adding the other 25 mg in the mornings...

if he wants 100 twice a day, then go to 100 at night by 25 mg increments over a slow period of 2 week increments and then start mornings...
it is VITAl
