Common Questions and Answers about Topamax generic price


361979 tn?1199307450 I have been on Topamax for aprox. 8 yrs now, the price of this med just keeps going up. I was recently told that they now have it in generic form, however my pharm has not been able to locate it and she has tried other options. I was told by the CCRX people that it was available, even the Walgreens in my area can not get it. Has any one had this problem? Just curiuos, I am wandering if this is only available in this big cities? and if so, why? My last sript for this med cost me $325.
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...

681148 tn?1437665191 A few years ago I had a breast reduction and was taking Dilaudid and other forms of generic Oxycontin to deal with the post op pain. I did okay with the meds at first, but I kept having to change which one, because I would have side effects that were too much to handle. Hydromorphone, Dilaudid, Vicodin--all of them had nasty side effects. I ended up with the worst migraines and the worst nausea ever. Obviously, these all knocked me out, too.
211940 tn?1267884866 It was like have a migraine headache but in that area. The culprit for me? A Topamax a medication my neuro had put me on. Have you had any changes in medication over the last month? I know the medicine he gave me did nothing at first....after about three weeks it set in. It would take me another month to figure it out.
Avatar f tn , she recommended we stay clear of Lamictel and topamax...she suggested Trileptal only if her irritability gets worse, but right now, we seem to have that under control and are sticking with the Keppra. I hope all works out for you. Ask your Dr. about the has really helped us out with her grumpiness!!!!!! Good luck and let me know if I can help you in any other way...
Avatar n tn It is also much cheaper as there is a generic. I could never afford the neurontin price and eat too. The only side effect I seem to have is that I sleep through the night which is not normal for me. I am generally up 2 or 3 times a NIGHT FOR many reasons. Sometimes because of the pain in my toes. Is anyone taking Elevil with success.
1079216 tn?1258204405 I'm glad to hear about Neurotin! I'm very newly taking (4 days into it) Fioricet; which is a close cousin of Neurotin. I'm also taking Pamelor @ night for the nerve pain (this might be the anti-depressent that you mentioned didn't help you) I have nerve stuff going too, but limited to my head only. Past 4 days since on Lyrica, only one migraine and my head is less burny/hurty! And, was able to cut it off @ the right time w/ Maxalt. I'm even wearing a pony tail today!
Avatar n tn I really want to stop before I do more damage to my body than has already been done. I know it's going to be hell trying to break this bad habit. Small price to pay though when it comes to your health. I am trying to schedule an appointment with a Neurologist since I finally have health insurance. I'm hoping I can get a prescription for something that will be a bit more effective and not as addicting. The hard part will be telling the Dr. about my awful habit.
Avatar n tn neither did lexapro, effexor, trazadone, tizanidene, ultra,migrazone, morphine, you name it , i took it...... topamax at 600 mg a day just made the pounds fall off. but my headaches eased up my moods were mellow. ...i also have ADD, and the fibro fog didnt get any better because topamax at high doses lol,,,i call DOPAMAX hehe but if you are having problems with weight gain, the DR can give as little as 25 to 50. i was 600!!
Avatar n tn where do you purchase the b12 shot / lip for a cheaper price
Avatar n tn It's always or should be prescribed as prn only! I never took it that way and paid the nasty price! Some take it once and awhile,it works,and it's all good. The thing is,for some, it's easy to take it everyday. Then you go from 2 to 4 a day. Then 8 a day,everyday....then run out/stop. Then the awful rebound headaches,anxiety,dizziness,all over pain...terrible! You're fortunate that it wasn't a problem. Kind of like me with opiates! October: It's good you're stopping these for now.
Avatar n tn i went six days without my medicine. i also take 200mg of topamax in the morning. for the past couple of days i have had EXTREME pressure behind my eyes. Everytime i'd move my eyes i would get so dizzy. the only relief i felt was when i was lying down. Nausea and diahrea were horrible as well for four days straight. I was scared all this was happening because of the topamax and the recent risks/side effect of glaucoma. I am twenty three.
Avatar n tn I need to know what these things look like or if they have a V symbol on them Not sure iwjhatf the Canadian (generic) looks like, I think she's hurt herself on purpose and is now contemplating going to the doctor. We're sliding downhill fast. Please help. This is getting scary.
Avatar n tn Another alternative is Tylenol PM or any other over the counter sleep aid (you can save money by buying the generic brand of benadryl--same thing). Although these take longer to work and will leave you somewhat groggy in the morning, I have almost always had success with them in a pinch.
Avatar n tn Hi I just wanted everyone on here to know that i once was on effexor for a whole year. Loved what it did for me mentally. I coulda' cared less about anything at all! including my weight, unfortunitaly- for me. I was a member of weight watchers before starting this med., i weighed in at a whopping 212lbs at 5'2". I lost 40lbs with weight watchers and still going strong... untill i got myself started on that nasty little pill. it ruined me. Most of my issues are due to my obesity.
Avatar n tn With this in mind, there are two doctors that I know of that are treating Meniere's disease with an anti-viral drug called Acyclovir, generic is Famvar. My friend started out on 800mg a day and now does one 400mg pill a day. If she does have a flare up it does not last as long, nor is as bad as it was before she started this program. Dr. Gacek from UMass in Worcester started the anti-viral program for Meniere's disease and Dr.
Avatar n tn The mfg of Oxycontin won a lawsuit to keep any other company from making generic Oxy until 2013. So generic is no longer available, however; my insurance won't pay for the brand name drug. I have been on Oxy's for 9 years and now I don't know what I'm going to do. My PCP wants me to go to a Pain Mgmt clinic to have them change my medication and once I'm on maintenance dose, then I can come back to her.
Avatar n tn My psychiatrist is weening me off the Lexapro and is giving me Topamax which should induce weight-loss and also lessen the side effects of going off the Lexapro. Unfortunately, there is a lot of side effects of Topomax as well but weight gain is not one of them and need to loose the weight now !!!!
Avatar n tn One thing you can do to help out, with any particle like that of smoke is, you can put in a whole house filter. The best in the business for price and efficiency is the Polarized Media Filters made by Electrobreeze. I would suggest these because I've had a friend that had problems with stuff that she was breathing in, and now doesn't have that problem any more. To get some more information on these I'd visit
Avatar n tn I've tried and tried but just can't figure it out. I too get these bouts of uncontrollable sneezing. Just as everyone describes, if I'm not sneezing I have the feeling I'm about to sneeze which is sometimes even worse. Typically lasts for 12 to 24 hours then gone.
363682 tn?1299492962 I am SOO amazed at all the people that have the same symptoms I am going through! I am 41 and up until the last couple years I could drink whenever and however much I wanted...not the case anymore! Even after a few drinks, and it doesn't matter what kind, I start getting a throbbing headache and ends up turning into a migraine the following morning. The only thing I have been able to take and find relief is my prescription migraine med, Maxalt...
Avatar n tn No, fioricet is a blue tablet with the shadow of three faces on it or a white tablet (generic) that is a tablet or a caplet shape. It is something I wish I had never seen!
