    It personally saved my life. I was in a really dark place and going through extreme mood swings and going from places of great anxiety to depressed and it made this portion of my life so much for manageable!

    it’s made my vomiting spells decrease, but it’s severely decreased my appetite. it changed the way carbonation in soda and stuff tastes and i genuinely don’t feel like eating most of the time.

    i was first prescribe topamax by a dietician when i was 15 to aid in weight loss. i stopped seeing that doc and stopped the medication for a few years. then when i was 18 or so i was prescribed it again by a neurologist to prevent migraines. i’ve been taking it ever since and hardly get migraines thankfully. i’m on a low dose so i haven’t noticed any mood stabilizing effects unfortunately.

    it severely decreases my appetite, and it caused a lot of tingled and loss of sensation in my hands, feet, and face which caused me to fall down some stairs and now i’m healing from a borderline broken ankle

    I was put on it for essential tremor and possibly to help with frequent headaches… it seems to have helped with both.

    I am on topiramate for chronic migrains and bipolar and it works miracles for me. And I have barely any side effects from it. And I love it, I honestly have no problems with it. It honestly makes it easier going through my days.

    I finally have a good combo of medications. I don't think I can function without them now. It's trial and error.

    This medication saved my life. Going onto it was tough (loss of feeling/tingling in hands/feet) and some other effects. However, I was having a migraine with hallucinations almost everyday and now I have one maybe every 2 months. I wasn't able to function because of my migraines. Warning though, this med made me very sleepy. They had to decrease the dose because I was randomly falling asleep in the middle of activities. I now take 25mg tablets, 2 at night 1 in the morning (helps with sleepiness taking them that way).
