    Hello everyone, I am taking Topomax since February and I didn't have any side effects. In the beginning, I felt a little bit tired but after a week or so everything was back to normal 🤗

    Weight loss is a side effect I guess and now thinking back I did have that occur

      oo ok I’ll have to monitor that because I do not want any weight loss

        I had the opposite...weight gain. But they say I'm a medical unicorn. ;)

    I’ve been on it for years. I was on 300mg a day and just started on 400mg a day. It’s been about a week on the new dose and is taking some time to get use to the new dose.

    I take it (have been for about a year now) and it helps :)

    Took it, developed SEVERE anxiety. Loved the weight loss but hated the anxiety, I literally cried at the doctor to let me off it. Never had anxiety before this and don't remember if it had any effect on the migraines. Be cautious.
