Hello All! Let me start by saying that I am not on Topamax for weightloss. I have severe migraines, and have for years. I finally bit the bullet and took my topamax after it sat in my medicine cabinet for 4 months. I have been hesitant to start another medication with yet more side effects. So my question is has anyone else had trouble sleeping with Topamax? I take 50mg at night and for two nights since I've started it I've had troube sleeping. I'm hoping that this might go away after a while. Thanks!
Topiramate is a very effective drug used in seizures and migraine. Every drug has its own advantages and disadvantages. Few common side effects of this drug are mood or behavior changes, anxiety, panic attacks, trouble sleeping etc.If these symptoms are severe or persistent you may need to consult your neurologist. He may suggest some medicine for relief in symptoms or an alternative medication. I hope it helps.
Best wishes and regards!
