I finally gave in and went on Topamax
. The migraines stopped. I did have side effects
and had to stop it. I had kidney stones, twitching, tingling, cognitive function difficulties, and weight loss. I am 5'8 and I lost down to 120 lbs. For me, that was too thin. However, since I stopped the Topamax in February I have gained all the weight I lost and then some. I'm also on Nortriptyline. It is an older antidepressant.
