> Nick,
> Thanks for your kind response. I do think your approach may be wisest. There is certainly no reason for me to hurry right up to 100 mg.
> I'm glad you're doing so well with Topamax. I had no idea it was useful for such a wide range of conditions. I had realized it was originally intended for epilepsy, but I've been taking it for migraines. It has worked beautifully. I'm down from one nearly every day to maybe one or two a week. My doctor's goal is one or two a month (almost unimaginable to me!), which is why he increased the dosage.
> I had no idea it worked as a mood stabilizer as well. I'm so glad it is working for you and you've hit on a combination that "works." It seems so seldom that one hears of that kind of success in putting together a course of treatment.

Ah,the good old migraine...
while I am primarily taking topomax for epilepsy, it was actually prescribed because of its side effect that deals with migraine...
and I have had only one migraine since I started taking it in January of 2003...
that when the neuro I now see tampered with the dosage...
now that I am back on my regular dosage and not taking the other pills I have no migraine and no seizures...
topomax all by itself is doing the job beautifully for me...
and I have no side effects...
no hair loss, no cognitive stuff, no tingles no nothing...
it is incredible...
and best of all, no tegretol...
am I gloating, believe it LOL
