    HELP PLEASE, I'm on day two of taking Topamax

    for Bi polar. I'm afraid of these side effects I'm experiencing; foggy head, tingling, warm body and moodiness. Do these subside as your body adjusts to the meds??

    I Take Topamax For My Migraines

    I also was prescribed Topamax and after one month I began to look like a skeleton. It took away my appetite, caused heart palpitations and I stopped taking it. This was a nightmare medication for me. I went back to Imitrex which stopped working for awhile but started working...

    I Used To

    But it didn't really work. Now I'm in the process of taking new meds for my migraines (don't ask me what they are, as I can barely think atm) I've suffered from migraines for about three years now. Them getting gradually worst over time. I now get migraines almost every day.
