Qudexy XR

Qudexy XR

@Topamax vs Quidexy XL anyone have their child on either of these? Is losing hair a side effect and is this drug a better option for energy during the school day?
Thanks

I was on Topamax for about 6 months, during a med change. It did make me lose a lot of hair (which continued for almost a year after my Dr. took me off it.). Worse though, were the panic attacks and horrible night mares. I lost weight very quickly, but the mental toll it was taking on me was not worth it. Others are very happy with topamax, but I wasn't the same person when I was on it. Just my 2 cents.

I used to take Topamax and noticed a side effect of depression and that can take away motivation/ energy, however a lot of drugs do cause this, so I'm not 100% sure which one would be best to keep your energy level at a good rate.
