> HI I'm on Zonegran right now for bipolar and it is not working as well as Topamax has for me in the past.
> I go to my pdoc on the 9th and plan on asking for a change but I need to know how to take the Topamax.
> In the past (over two years ago) he gave me 100mg pills and within a month or less I was on 200mg of the stuff every night and I lost a LOT of hair and I think I didn't take the med the right way to start with (note: I did take vitamins). It DID work on my bipolar very well but I would like to avoid the hair loss this time if I can (note: L, at what mg's does your daughter loss her hair ?) So if Someone here can give me a dosing schedule on how to go from 0 to 200mgs that would be GREAT... THANK YOU so much.... :-) And Thanks everyone for sharing your story about Topamax... :-)

Ask your doctor to start you at 25 mg a day starting in the evenings increasing the dosage at two week intervals until you reach half the total desired dosage...
when you reach the half then add 25 mg in the mornings and again go up by two week intervals in the mornings until the second half of the total dosage is reached...
