Hi everyone,
I just started taking topamax a week ago and I have no appetite. I am finding this difficut because I am also on a high dose of lamictal and I need to eat when I take it. Will this last? Also at night I can't decide if I am having a seizure or it's a side effect. When I am sleeping sometimes I wake up and have no vision. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

Hello,
The common side effects of Topamax are fatigue,dizziness,loss of appetite, Decreased visual acuity and /or ocular pain has been reported on use of Topamax.There may be myopia and secondary angle closure glaucoma .It is difficult to confirm whether what you are experiencing is a side effect of Topamax or a seizure. I will advise you to see your doctor and discuss about it. I do hope it helps.
Take care and best regards!
