WELL EVERYONE, I HAVE BEEN OFF TOPAMAX FOR A YEAR AND LIKE I SAID I HAVE GAINED BACK 10 POUNDS, NOT HAPPY AT ALL. I DO EERYTHING THE DOCTORS TELL ME AND HAVE BEEN WALKING NOW FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS AND WILL INCREASE MY WALKING AS FAR AS DISTANCE IN EARLY OCTOBER.  

I WANT SO MUCH TO BEGIN THE AGE OF 50, WHICH WILL BE IN FEBUARY AT A WEIGHT I WILL BE COMFORTABLE AND LOOK SLAMMING HOT WITH MY WEIGHT BEING 135-140.  IT WILL HAPPEN, DETERMINATION.  THE DOWN SIDE TO THIS IS I DOUBT VERY MUCH MY PAIN MANAGMENT DOCTOR WILL LET ME USE TOPAMAX AGAIN, WHICH SHE IS THE ONE WHO PUT ME ON IT FOR WEIGHT LOSS.  I DONT THINK SHE FELT TOTALLY COMFORTABLE WITH ME BEING ON A MED THAT HAVE COULD HAVE RESULTED IN MANY SIDE EFFECTS, BUT ONLY AND THIS IS IMPORTANT, THAT IF YOU STAY UNDER 50 MGS A DAY, WHICH IT IS TAKEN ONCE A DAY, NO SIDE EFFECTS ANS I HAD NONE.  

SICE TOPAMAX IS NOT A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE, I JUST RECENTLY ORDERED IT FROM THE INTERNET. NO BEING SAID THAT, I AM NOT A STUPID PERSON TO BEGIN WITH,VERY INTELLLIGENT AND SEARXHED AND SEARCHED TILL I FOUND A WEBSITE THAT I THUGHT WAS RELIABLE AND SAFE TO ORDER THIS DRUG FROM.  I KNOW WHEN YOU ORDER DRUGS FROM THE INTERNET THEY CME FROM OTHER COUNTRIES, HECK WHERE DO YOU THINK YOUR TECH SUPPORT COMES FROM WHEN YOU NEED HELP WITH YOUR COMPUTER, ITS JUST THE WAY IT IS.\

I HAVE ORDERED ALSO IN THE PAST, A DRUG CALLED "SOMA" WHICH IS AN EXCELLANT MUSCLE RELAXANT USED FOR FIBROMYALGIA.  NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH IT.  MY TOPAMAX WAS BEING SHIPPED AIR MAIL WILL COME IN  2 WEEKS.  NOT WORRIED ABOUT IT, I WILL TAKE 25 MGS FOR THE FIRST 2 WEEKS THEN 50 TILL I GET THIS WEIGHT OFF.  AND OCCASSIONALLY I WILL USE IT AS NEEDED TO KEEP WEIGHT OFF ONCE I REACH  MY GOAL.  NOW TOPMAX IS CONSIDERED AN ANTI-C-ONVULSANT DRUG AND MIGRAINE MEDICINE, WHO DOESNT GET THEM.  

ITS JUST THE BEST SIDE EFFECT IS WEIGHT LOSS.  AND LIKE I KEE[ STRESSING IF YOU STAY UNDER 100 MGS, NO SIDE EFFECTS.  TRUST ME MY HUBBY WONT BE HAPPY, BUT TOO BAD.  I WANT TO BE IN THE BEST SHAPE POSSIBLE IN MY YEAR OF BEING 50 YRS OLD.  

I EXTERNALLY AM VERY VAIN ABOUT MY APPEARANCE, I CUT MY OWN HAIR, COLOR IT AND DO ACRYLIC ON MY NAILS, I LIKE FEELING, LOOKING SEXY.  MY HUSBAND LOVES ME KNOW HOW MUCH I WAY, BUT ITS SURE NICE WHEN A STRANGER TELLS YOU HOW BEAUTIUFL YOU ARE.  EGO BOOST AND YES ITS NICE TO HEAR I AM BEING TOTALLY HONEST.

I AM A LIC. NAIL TECHNICIAN BY TRADE AND BEING IN THE COSMETOLOGIY FEILD KEEPS YOU IN LINE APPEARANCE WISE.  IT REALLY MAKES ME ANNOYED WHEN I SEE WHAT WAS ONCE A BEAUTIFUL WOMEN, LET HERSELF GO ONLY BECAUSE SHE GOT MARRIED AND HAD 3 KIDS.  WHY DO WOMEN DO THAT?  TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF AND DONT BLAME IT ON THE KIDS AND TOO MUCH TO DO.  EVERYONE NEEDS PAMPERING.  EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO DO IT YOURSELF.  MONEY IS TIGHT FOR EVERYONE THESE DAYS AND MAY BE GET WITH A FRIEND AND GIVE EACH OTHER FACIALS, MANICURES, NOT HARD TO DO AND EXPERIMENT WITH HAIR COLOR, ETC.  

IT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER AND WHATEVER MEDICAL PROBLEMS YOU HAVE, TRUST ME IT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER.  LIKE I SAID I SUFFER FROM DEBILITATING FIBROMYALGIA, SEVERE BACK PROBLEMS, ALL OVWER BODY PAIN TO WHERE I CRY SOMETIMES.  BUT WHEN I GET UP IN THE MORNING, TOTALLY FEELING LIKE CRAP, I STILL TAKE THE TIME TO DO MY HAIR, MAKEUP AND DRESS NICE.  

MY HUSBAND LETS ME KNOW FROM TIME TO TIME HOW VAIN I AM, WELL SO BE IT.  HE IS WALKING AROUND 80 POUNDS OVERWEIGHT, ALSO HAS FIBROMYAGIA, BUT DOESNT DO ANYTHING TO MAKE HIMSELF EVEN TRY TO FEEL BETTER.  THIS HAS PUT A LOT OF STRESS ON OUR MARRIAGE FOR THE LAST 9 MONTHS SINCE HE HAS BEEN HOME SINCE DEC. RETIRING FROM HIS JOB.  HE IS ON PAIN MEDS TOO, NOT PERCOCET LIKE I AM ON BECAUSE HE DOESNT HAVE NEAR THE PAIN ISSUES I HAVE.  

BUT I WILL BE HONEST TOO, I WIND UP GOING THROUGH MY MEDS THE LAST TWO WEEKS BEFORE I CAN GET ANOTHER SCRIPT.  YEAH IT KILLS ME WITH PAIN AND WILL CONVINVE MY PAIN MAMANGMENT DOCTOR TO ALLOW ME TO TAKE 2 IN MORNING AND TWO IN AFTERNOOW ALONG WITH THE TRAMEDOL I TAKE.  NOW I HAVE BEEN ON PAIN  MEDS FOR 3 YRS.  IN DEC, I ASKED TO GO ON SOMWTHNG LESS STRINGER THEN PERCOCET ONLY BECAUSE I AM WORRIED IF I EVER NEED SURGERY, IT WONT WORK FOR ME.  SHE WAS EXTREMELY HAPPY ABOUT THIS AND WE DECIDED ON NORCO, WHICH IS CONSIDWRED A LOW DOSE CICDIN TYPE, WORKED WELL.  RECENTLY IN THE LAST 2 MONTHS, I REQUESTED AGAIN PEROCET BECAUSE OF MY NEW AILMENTS, BRUCITIOUS IN BOTH HIPS AND SEVERE TENDONITIOUS IN RIGHT ELBOW.  BUT SHE ALLLOWS 3 A DAY.  

4 WOULD BE BETTER.  I SEE HER SOON AND WILL REQUEST 4 NORCO A DAY AND THEN IT SHOULD BE ALRIGHT.  BUT IT IS INTERESTING WHEN I RUN OUT OF MY NARCOTICS, I GET NO WITHDRAWL, NONE.  YOU KNOW WHY?  BECAUSE PEOPLE IN CHRONIC PAIN DONT GET ADDICTED.  ITS A KNOWN FACT.  ANYONE READING MY BLO, PLEASE VISIT THIS WEBSITE, ITS CALLED www.chronicpainconnection.com.

EXCELLANT SITE.  I HAVE READ, RESEARCHED AND LEARNED SO MUCH ABOUT PEOPLE IN CHRONIC PAIN.  THE PAIN MANAGEMENT DOCTORS, WELL SOME OF THEM ARE SO RELLUCTANT TO GIVE NARCOTICS BECAUSE OF THE PEOPLE WHO SAY THEY ARE IN PAIN AND ARE NOT AND WANT THEM FOR THE HIGH THEY GET FROM THEM AND THE FACT THEY CAN SELL THEM.  THIS RUINS IT FOR THE REAL PEOPLE WHO ARE IN CHRONIC PAIN AND NEED THE MEDS.  WE DONT GET ADDICTED OR HIGH.  

THE DEA CLOSLY MO ITORS ANY DOCOTR WHO DISPENSES NARCOTICS TO MAKE SURE ITS BEING HANDLED CORRECTLY.  I UNDERSTAND THIS, BUT WHEN A DOCTOR DEVELOPS A REPORE WITH A PATIENT, DOES ALL  THE MRI TO SEE WHERE THE PROBLLEM LIES, THEN ITS LEGIT.  I HAVE HEARD OF A PLACE IN FLORIDA THEY CALL "PAIN ALLEY" SAW IT ON DR. PHIL ONE DAY.  ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO IN THEIR WITH YOUR MRI AND GET ANY NARCOTIC YOU WANT.  NOW WHY ISNT THE DEA MONITIORING THAT????

I DONT UNDERSTAND.  AND ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN, NARCOITCS ARE EXTEMELY HARD TO PURCHASE OVER THE INTERNET.  THEY COST A LOT OF MO EY FOR WHAT I DONT EVEN KNOW ARE LEGIT WEBSITES ANSD NOT STEALING YOUR MONEY OR GIVING YOU A PLACEBO.  SO WHY CAN YOU GO TO PAIN ALLY IN FLORIDA AND NOT ORDER FROM INTERNET???  GO FIGURE.

WELL IN A WAY I LIKE RUNNING OUT OF NARCOTICS FROM TIME TO TIME BECAUSE IT MAKES ME NO I HAVE NO ADDICITION ISSUES.  I DONT GET THE CHILLS, SWEATS OR SHAKES.  NOTHING HAPPENS, MY PAIN IT JUST WORSE THEN IT BALANACES OUT.  OKAY SO YOU SAY TO YOURSELF THEN WHY BOTHER TAKING THEM?  TRUST ME, I GET SO MUCH WORK DONE AROUND MY HOUSE, YARD THAT DESPERATELY NEEDS TO BE DONE, HUBBY DOSEN'T DO MUCH, ITS ALL ON ME, HE SAYS I AM THE MAN OF THE HOUSE.  

ONCE I FUNALLY GET THE LAST 30 POUNDS OFF, HEY MAYBE, JUST MAYBE I WILL FELL BETTER PAIN WISE.  I DID GET 60 POUNDS OFF, PUT BACK 10, AND NEVER FELT ANY BETTER.  I AM STARRTING MENOPAUSE RIGHT NOW, NO PERIOD FOR 2 MONTHS.  THATS ANOTHER INTERESTING STORY, I HAD HYSTEREXTOMY 4 YEARS AGO, UTERUS REMOVED BECAUSE OF VERY HEAVY BLEEDING, KEPT OVARIES AND KEPT CERVIX.  HAD MY BLADDER LIFTED BECAUSE OF SEVERE URINE LEAKAGE, IT WAS TERRIBLE, NOT A DRIBBLE AS SOME WOMEN GET,  IT WAS TIME, HAD IT ALL DONE.  TO DATE, AND THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR 4 YRS EXCEPT FOR THE LAST 2 MONTHS NOW, I HAVE HAD WHAT I CALL A "PHANTOM 5 DAY PERIOD" FOR 4 YRS!!!!!!!!

MY VAGINA DROPPED, THEY SHOULD HAVE SECURED IT, CERVIX DROPPED  PRESSING ON URETHRA MAKING IT DIFFICULT FOR ME TO URINATE, NICE HUH?  WELL IT TURNS OUT, I FOUND AN EXCELLANT DOCTOR WHO BY THE WAY DOESNT TAKE MY INSURANCE AND WILL DO MY MUCH NEEDED MAJOR SURGERY FOR CORRECTION ON EVERYTHING.  I WAS SO AMAZED ON HER KINDNESS WITH ME, AND THE 1 1/2 SHE TOOK WITH MY HUSBAND AND I.  WHEN I MEET SOMEONE LIKE THAT AS I CONSIDER MYSELF AN EXTREMELY KIND AND CAREING PERSON, I LLET IT BE KNOWN, TO MAKE LONG STORY SHORT, I WORTE A REALLY NICE REVIEW ON THIS DOCTOR AND IN RETURN, (NOT EVERY KNWING SHE WOULD EVER SEE THIS LETTER, NOT MY INTENETION), IT GOT BACK TO HER BY ANOTHER PATIENT AND SHE IS DOING MY SURGERY FOR FREE!

SHE HELPS ALL THOSAE POOR WOMEN WHO HAVE MAN MANGLED IN AFRICA AS CHARITY WORK, I ADMIRE HER GREATLY, SHE HAS BEEN ON OPRAH, DR. OZ AND THE TODAY SHOW HERE IN NY.  SHE WROTE A BOOK CALLED "PLUMBING AND RENOVOVATIONS" WHICH HELPS WOMEN UNDERSTAND CHAGES IN  THEIR BODIES.  I WAS CRYING ON THE PHONE THE DAY I RECIEVED THWE WONDERUL PHONE CALL FROM HER OFFICE.  GOD BLESS HER AND HER KINDNESS AND KNOWING I WILL BE FIXED RIGHT.

I AM SORRY I WROTE SUCH A LONG LETTER AND HOPE THAT IT HELPS PEOPLE IN PAINAND HAVING WEIGHT ISSUES AND WOMEN PORBLMS, GOD BLESS TO ALL AND MAY WE LIVE OUT OUR YRS, THINNER, KEEP THE BODY MOVING, AND HAPPIER!  LOVE TO ALL TAMMY ^j^

Hi Tammy, I have been researching fibromyalgia every chance I have had recently.  I do not suffer from it as you and so many others do.  It really breaks my heart to read what my Facebook friends go through.  I have a neighbor whose mother had fibro.  Key word is "had."  She began using a product that I use because it is a whole, raw plant food.  I use it because it helps me feel good, improve my cholesterol, takes away my arthritic and bunion pain, friends say my skin glows and now my hair and nails grow so strongly...it has also helped my husband with chronic pain associated with neck and back surgery  (the narcotics he used to use were methadone and a pain patch and he also took Lyrica).  He used to have pain on the pain scale of 6-8 chronically, now, he only uses the pain patch and his pain is 0-1 every day now.  And, you know what narcotics can do to your bowel movements, he has daily BMs now!  He said it was worth it just to have regular BMs again.  The product we use is called Mila.  It is by Lifemax.  I am a distributor and can sell it, but I also want to give it to some people with fibro to see if it works for them like it did for my friend's mom.  Please contact me so we can talk about getting some to you to try, gratis.
