I have suffered for years from migraines. Finally, after many narcotics, my neurologist has prescribed Topamax. It works!, but w/one side effect. I am losing 10lbs a month. in the 4 months i have been on it i have lost 40 lbs. Also, he has had to raise the dosage. I am up to 200mg daily. There is some tingling in my hands and feet, and no appetite, also, no energy. No migraines though. I WAS overweight. Now I have been told as long as I don't go below 150 I am fine. Give me one more month, I say. I weigh 160 now. Trying my best to eat, but some days I can w/o eating anything. Don't know how long I will be on this med, but it does work for migraines, if only i could EAT! Good luck...
