Anyone ever been on Topamax? My dr. wants to start me on this for my chronic tension headaches and also my mood disorder. My headaches are basically caused by stress and anxiety. I have rapidly flucuating moods and she feels this will help me a lot in addition to my Lexapro. Anyone had any experiance with this for headaches or mood (bipolar?)
