Increased Meds And Leg Problems

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Recently my Dr increased my Gabapentin three fold and added 100 mg of Topamax. Since the med change I've noticed a lot more leg pain and numbness. I can no longer walk a flight of stairs without stopping and even walking around the house has become a problem. They are keeping me awake at night twitching and aching. Is this normal, part of getting used to it?
