Hi, I haven't started to take my meds yet. I have been reading alot on the side effects using topamax and experiencing hair loss. I would love for people to be honest about what i CAN expect and when can I expect it. I noticed many people having lots of hair loss, at the same time lot's of you have not commented on whether or not you have noticed hair loss and at what point did you notice this. 2 weeks in or 2 months in? Has anyone noticed that you stopped losing hair after months, weeks, years being on this medication? Will the hair grow back at any point? doctor's won't answer this question because they say it's not a side effect. Clearly if this has happened to so many people there must be a connection. how soon and at what strength did you start to notice hair loss. Please i am desperate to find answers.
