Oh Nettie,
MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS
I am so very happy to know that you are doing well...
I often wonder about the people I have met here and wonder how they are doing...
We all want things to work at once RIGHT THIS MINUTE and when the magic pill doesn't do the trick right away we are discouraged, disenchanted...
or we take too much right away thinking if 25 mg is the starting dosage, then if I take 75 mg.... well it will kick start the effect...

and that is not the way to go with ANY med, especially not this one.

It is vital to work up in two week increments to the half dose then start again in two week increments to the rest... and to let the body adjust in the evening... someone correct me here if I have it wrong (it has been a long time lol)
and NOT to start with some in the morning and some at night....
do it that way and you are going to be ill and nauseous... take me word for it...
been there done that and didn't read the destructions...
they gave me a pamphlet telling me how to start and I didn't read it carefully...
when I started over, working up to half the total all at the same time, it worked...

and I cannot stress enough the water... lots of it...
I am suffering severe kidney damage because of another drug that was inappropriately prescribed...
so drink that water folks.. protect your kidneys...

aside from that, Topomax does make you thirsty... perhaps a built-in safety feature???


and as always, if I can help, well, mes amis,just ask and I shall try...

Merry Christmas...
from the land of deep deep snow

Kat

> HI there Kitty Kat.... i just love to hear from you........Yes it has been a long long time. I have to tell you sight unseen what a wonderful mentor you have been through my questionable years hear on this board................and for anyone reading this LISTEN to this lady because I did and it not only eased my mind but everything that she said did in fact come to pass ,for me that is, with Topomax usage and i must have asked you unsurmountable amounts of questions. But you being as thoughtfully gracious and careful in your wording guided me thrugh some of my hardest decision making because after all it comes down to one thing. Do we as the patient know about what we are taking and how we are really feelingafter taking it. I monitored myself. You have to. everyone is different.these are not pain killers or antibiotics. I used some drugs that were just not RIGHT for me and was going in circles getting worse. Kat you helped me know this when I didn't. i asked questions and you answered them by asking me more questions that i could ask myself because you are also a patient. love it --- got a love it--I am the one that said to my DR. 100mg of Topomax is just not cutting it 200mg won't cut trust me 400 I know I can handle and need........ and guess what ? i did need........I am on it ready to take an increase and why because i knew from this Lady the stormrider so take a ride through a storm only to see the sun at the end because you will purr like a kitty cat because it will have been because KAT WILL HAVE HAD YOUR BACK! MERRY CHRISTMAS MY ONLINE PHYSCHO BABBLE FRIEND SUGAR BEAR
