I don't know that I can give you much advice on the withdrawal, but I did take Topomax a few years back and getting off of it was quite rough, with significant anxiety, depression, and even some suicidality. I'm not trying to scare you, but merely to corroborate your withdrawal experience as being real. I can only suggest going as slow as possible, and if I was doing it today, I might try to alleviate the symptoms with benadryl, and Zyprexa PRN. Those are only suggestions though.
