Topamax and tylenol

Common Questions and Answers about Topamax and tylenol


Avatar n tn Yes, it's ok to take Tylenol. I take Topamax which reduces the frequency of migraines. Sometimes I still get a migraine and tylenol is the only drug I can take in addition. I also have fibromyalgia and take daily Ultracet - which also contains acetominophen (Tylenol).
2063048 tn?1390828211 He also had no answer to what could be causing those and why it's almost solely on my left side and my face. He said try the Topamax and go from there. Have any of you been on Topamax? Is it a worthy investment of time and money to give it a try? I see my NS on Wednesday for my one year follow up, so I'll obviously run it by him before I fill the Rx :) Thanks!
Avatar n tn I also take thyroid meds-- armour and have endometriosis so I will take Advil and Tylenol for the pain from endo. I also have Nasonex and Allegra for allergies. If anyone knows how these drugs will interact with one another please let me know. Also I had depakote but it made me feel like a zombie will Topamax do the same since it is also an anticonvulsant?
Avatar f tn Hi may I ask why you stopped this medication?.... And did you inform your Dr of this change? TOPAMAX will change your HA's and come back full force when you stop the meds, is not something to just stop taking without the advice and guidance of your Dr.
Avatar n tn Can you take clenbuterol and topamax together? any side effects I should be worried about?
Avatar n tn I have digenerative disc disease and my neirologist just prescribed topamax, he said it would help with the pain and tingling but could result in weight loss. I am wondering if prescribing topamax for ddd is common among neurologists? I can't seem to find any other information related to topamax as a pain med, only information I have is that it's a powerful drug with lots of side effects, most not so good. The weight loss aspect is the only plus...
Avatar n tn it stopped when I stopped the topamax.. My doc wanted me to go on Nuerotin, and I wanted to retry topamax, as I was afraid to go on Neurotin, as it is a nasty drug! So... no side affects this time as I'm taking it 50mg 2X daily...except the hair loss... now my hair is then, see through hair follicles, a buch of hair in my brushes...and my hair was ALWAYS thick... always always thick :( Now I just want off... i want off of everything and I'll deal with the seizures unmedicated...
Avatar f tn What's your worse side effect? What about topamax? I heard some good some bad and was wondering how many of you are on topamax for headaches? I don't have seizures so would this med even be an option? Does it help with your head/neck pain? Thanks for any and all advise!
Avatar n tn It has been shown in clinical studies that patients who get the side effect of hands and feet tingling show a MUCH better response to the topamax for migraine relief!! So, the hands and feet tingling side effect and the topamax actually working as a migraine drug go hand in hand... this is a very good sign for you!! Birth control can make migraines much worse... it is good that you got the old birth control removed when it made your migraines worse...
Avatar f tn I have been taking topamax for 6 years for miagraines and seizures.I went up on the topamax slowly ( I take 100mg but I started out at 25mg). I will tell you that I was groggy so make sure you take it at night. I also had some problems with concentrating and that lasted about a month. I will say that not having the migraines was wonderful so ifyou can hang for a month you will feel better. The really great thing about topamax is that over 4-6 months of being on the med I lost about 50 lbs.
Avatar f tn Among those nerve drugs are Neurontin or Lyrica, Topamax, Tegretol, and Dilantin. So, I imagine you could take any one of those medicines and get the pain relief you need without also having to take Tylenol, but as to short-term or long-term effect, or whether they are too strong or not strong enough, or whether any of them have liver damage as a possible side effect, that would be something your prescribing physician would know or could find out for you.
237152 tn?1206654636 I have been researching Topamax and all I can find is info. about seizures and migraines. Why would he give me this, and is it addictive? Anyone have any knowledge?
975514 tn?1325001538 DnnTrry- I switched from Lyrica to Topamax completely mostly because of the weight gain and cost. Lyrica and Topamax are both anti-seizure meds and do not have any major interactions, but I understand your apprehension. Also, side effects from Topamax are most crippling usually when you increase too fast. I hope your doctor didn't place you on 50mg right off the bat??? That dosage is sure to give you some discomfort.
Avatar f tn I am taking 75mg. of topamax and also taking Zoloft and Verapamil for migraines. I am not loosing any weight. I am so frustrated because I feel that I'm the only one that's not losing. Does anyone think it's because of the other drugs I'm taking? Next week I go to 100mg.
284078 tn?1282620298 Fortunately, God was on her side because she was smart enough to stop the Topamax and go to the emergency room before she developed an attack of acute narrow angle glaucoma (symptoms severe eye pain, headache, nausea, vomiting, almost complete vision loss.) Her ocular pressure was actually only slightly elevated and with cessation of the Topamax, her pressure returned to normal in a day, while it took over a week for her vison to return to normal.
Avatar f tn You guys are kidding me. You called your docs and said, hey doc, I'm having excruciating bone pain from my CHEMOTHERAPY and this mind-numbing amount of PROCRIT I must take every week such that I can barely move, and the guy said, "Take a tylenol, and call me in the morning, at which point I'll advise you to take some ibuprofen?" I asked my doctor for a referral to a good pain management physician before I began treatment.
Avatar f tn I had decompression surgery in 2009 but it didn't relieve the headaches all that much. I am now pregnant and the meds I was on before pregnancy (Topamax & Vicodin), of course I can't take now and Tylenol is not helping much at all. Just wondering if anyone else has been pregnant with chiari and how you got through the headaches. Also, were there any special precautions you had to take with the pregnancy?
Avatar f tn This type of medication is used to prevent headaches from occurring, and there are several types including but not limited to beta blockers such as propranolol, calcium channel blockers such as verapamil, and others including topamax, depakote, elavil, etc. A lot of these medications were invented for other uses and are used not only for headache but also epilepsy and depression. They have proven very effective in preventing headaches.
Avatar f tn This requires a specific treatment in which the over-used medications are slowly stopped and replaced with more long-acting medications. Tylenol with caffiene, and similar medications, can cause medication overuse headache if used too frequently. Lyrica, which is used for fibromyalgia, can be used for chronic headaches too. Causes of neck pain associated with headache are cervicogenic headache and occipital neuralgia.
Avatar f tn I was going through, oh I dunno, 6 excedrin migraine pills a day, I was immune to Tylenol because I had taken so much of it as a kid, and nothing else worked. Sooo, finally my neurologist had me try Topamax and it worked out rather lovey. I've been on it for about 3-4 months now and I think I've had maybe 3 headaches since then. The first day I didn't have one I thought something was wrong with me:p Getting through all of the side effects was a bit weird, but worth it for me.

Avatar f tn I've had to start taking topamax for headache/migraine prevent. My mom gets debilitating migraines and swears by alleve migraine. Other than that have you tried taking over the counter pain killers (like alleve or advil) for the week prior to rain? I know it's inconvenient to do especially since rain can be finicky. But it might give some relief if you take it even if there's a small chance of rain in the 7 day forecast. (I take one advil twice a day for my broken back.
454371 tn?1221300985 Guys who are taking these things and haven't experienced any seizures, you still need to talk to your doctor. I had been taking an over the counter sinus med (tylenol Sinus) for years for this hayfever and chronic sinusitis with no problems. Well the problem came when I ran out for a few days and went to the store to get some more. BOOM!!! Passed out in wal-mart, concussion, scalp laceration (required 10 stitches), and a night in the hospital.
Avatar n tn I am VERY worried though that I am about 3 weeks past conception having taking pain killers, and even the Topamax. I have 2 children already and would never even let someone smoke around me during my previous pregnancies. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn I take Topamax which is another anti-seizure med and it seems to help me and it comes with the added benefit of weight loss for some people. Just keep an open mind and make sure to talk out all of your concerns and issues with your new doctor. Keep us posted.
Avatar f tn symsptoms occur intermittently and upon awakening every am headache that is relieved with tylenol. mra brain normal mri shows glictic foci associated with miagraines bs early microvascular ischemic changes my question is could this all be symptoms associated with miagraines and never have a severe headache.
Avatar f tn He has been going easy on the prescription meds, because I have sensitivities to many prescriptions. I can't take Tylenol because I get weird symptoms with it, not just dizziness. And, I certainly don't need any addtional dizziness with these migraines.
Avatar n tn The other day I had a lot of pain/pressure especially behind the eyes. Maybe the cold weather. Hopefully the Topamax and antibiotic will kick in. Are you taking painkillers/Triptans?
681148 tn?1437665191 Right now I'm so frustrated with the whole thing that I'm at a loss of what I can do to help with the pain and balance issues. I'm unable to take Acetametaphin (Tylenol) and we all know that's pretty useless for FMS pain and pretty toxic to the liver anyway. I can take NSAIDS, but I have to limit how much since I have GERD and gastritis both. So, I can't take Naproxen even as often as the neurologist would like for me to take for treating the migraines.
Avatar f tn who can explain or find out WHY it's not showing, and how I can prove to them I follow orders? Trust me, if taking a tylenol would work, I'd be gladly taking this, to get my life back. I hate being out of work, drives me insane. Any input?
