I was wondering if this has happened to anybody else? It is the same drug so I’m confused as to what is going on.
Hello everyone! Yesterday I went to my doctor and I got my Topamax dosage upped by 25 mg a night. Today, I've felt dizzy and confused, tonight my left cheek bone area went numb/ tingly (a side effect to the Topamax that I had when I first started the medication in April) I'm just wondering if this is normal? It's like when I first started the meds... You know what i mean? The tiredness, confusion, dizziness, tingling, that all happened the first week I was on the medication and then it subsided… read more
Hey everyone. My girlfriends son is 10 years old and suffers from seizures. Her and his father wanted him off the keppra. So we are slowly weaning him off. His father and him went to the neurologist the other day and they said she is going to up his Topiramate or trokandi. Well since we upped it to Another 50 mg like she said he is staying up all night and sleeping until the afternoon. I was wondering if we can have him take it during the day and if anyone else had this side effect. And how… read more
Update: Okay so I'm getting responses but none that answer my question. I appreciate hearing everyone's experiences but I really do need my question answered.
What hair regrowth/strengthening products do you use? (Minoxidil aside, because I already use it)
Topamax (Topiramate) badly damaged my hair follacles when I was on it a handful of years back. (I'm now 33 yrs old). I use Minoxidil, but I am wondering what else I could be doing. Any suggestions from those with the same issue?
I have clusters of seizures that take hours to break (100-150 seizures) and i take 2-3 milligrams of Ativan to break the cluster. Anyone know if CBD would benefit me.
Has anyone taken one of these meds for left temporal lobe epilepsy, what have been your side effects? Have you had success?
At the moment I am on Keepra 1250mg and Clobazam 20 mg (25 mg around my prd) This year I have had an increase of complex partial seizures (from 1 a year to 3 a year); I normally have about 5-9 simple partial seizures a month; around my ovulation and period
Weight gain- weight has increased big time since this was added into the mix(500 mg) I retired 3 years ago of added on weight on keeping as active as I c9uld,wth a bit of added on weight Pools are still closed due to Covid so I've been doing on line exercises religiously I know everyone ones experience is different eg I lost 4 stone on Topiramate & apologies if this has been asked before
I don't want to waste your time, so I will cut to the point. I'm taking 1200mg and the blood level 12. I take 600Mg AM and 700Mg PM, so thing what happens, during the day I have no seizure at all, but once I take the medication at night, I will have seizure during sleep (Only), I don't know why. The only difference is that I'm taking 400mg Carbetrol at night that's the only time I take Carbetrol.
Has any one has a problem like that?
