Does anyone take Topamax? Any side effects? I've been on it almost 2 months now and I've had a 31 days long migraine with a pain level of 5, I don't know if it's caused by the medication.

Nothing says it causes migraines and I've never had a migraine last this long before, maybe 10 days but never longer than that. I'm just concerned as these migraines make it hard for me to function properly.

    I tried Topamax for a few days due to headaches and it gave me a migraine!! It just made my head hurt so much more and I only realized it was the medication once I stopped it. I would try weaning off it and see how you feel.

      so should I mention this to my doctor when I see him at my next appointment? My headaches have gone down from a 10 now to a 5-6.7 now so I do see some progress but the month long headache was so long and just worried me 😅

        I definitely would. Have you seen any improvement since you started taking it? If it's not helping or if you're not sure, ask your doctor if you can wean off it. Unfortunately, trial and error is the only way to find out.
