> Isn't that the strangest side effect, not being able to string two words together? You could be a Harvard graduate and suddenly you turn into a 10 year old. And a dumb 10 year old at that. Between that and the disgusting tasting beverages I think Topomax qualifies as the weirdest drug on the market. It's a weight-loss a'go-go though for most. A day in the life of a Topomax user....

LOL, great post!!
I'm on the topamax now.. Started right at 200mg, haven't lost a pound, but when I was on it before, the weight FLEW off... I think I got it wrong this time around and I was at 300-400 last time. Time for a record check.
Funny thing, BEFORE I was taking this med, I suffered from not being able to remember the names of common household objects and never really knew what caused it, but, I could remember a face I had seen for a split second, once, drunk, blindfolded, back 20 years earlier. Go figure. I often swap my kids names around.. my father did the exact same thing. Genetics? Stupidity? I did just turn 40?...Hmmm..
