I use to get migraines every day. Sometimes the pain was so bad I could barely see. After using topamx I rarely get a migrine. I sometimes get a headache. I have been using topamax for 3 years now with no real side effects except for weight loss.

Comment:
I experienced horrible side effects with confusion, memory loss, abdominal pain, back pain, speech impairment, nausea and reflux. I became so confused and unsteady, I could not drive or even make dinner. The side effects were intolerable for me. I took it for eight (8) weeks. No relief.
