Amazing!! Me too! I just started this week! How much are you taking? I've been taking 150 mg for five years now. I take it for migraines but I don't feel it is helping anymore since for the last year I have been having them again.
It is a slow process going off this stuff. My Dr. prescribed 25mg topamax to take with the 100 mg., that is 125mg. for a month. After that for the next month I am to take just the 100 mg. tablet for one month. Next a 50mg and a 25. for 75 mg. Each month going down 25 mg.
Would you believe it My Dr said (I'm on 150 too) : "Take 100 mg today, 50 mg tomorrow and you're done". I think he should lose his license.. I would probably have like crazy withdrawal effects from this "tapering"..
