I didn't try Topamax before but what I know is numbness and tingling are some of Topamax side effects. It become less with time.
Are numbness and tingling really bad? or u can handle it?
Do you have any other side effects? How long to use it?
Is Topamax useful as mood stabilizer and good for weight loss according to your experience?
The numbness & tingling can get bad at times & lasts so long it actually hurts.....I am still experiencing it and like I mentioned my dosage has not been increased for at least 6 months or more.
I do experience some slight brain fog but it's not very bad, and any carbonated drink tastes flat. So I have switched from Pepsi to sweet tea. I have been on it for 16 months this time and I have lost weight both times I have been on it....about 20 pounds both times.
It works well for me as a mood stabilizer. It did the first time as well.
Hope this helps.....
I am hesitant to use Topamax. I'm worry about barin fog issue. What is your advice?
Hi there. I had burning prickly sensations in my feet and blurred vision with Topomax. The prickly feeling went away immediately after I stopped Topomax, but I need contacts now. My vision hasn't returned to it's baseline in the last 2 months.
