Avatar n tn I've had all sorts of side effects, some I tried to ignore and blame on the recent beta blocker withdrawal I had from Nadolol. Now on my first day off of it. What really convinced me to get off Topamax was the 7th day dose when I went to 50mg at night. I woke up three hours later having a small anxiety attack and couldn't get back to sleep. So the side effects for me are the light headiness, tight back/kidney, difficulty concentrating, lack of sleep, dizziness, shivers, and anxiety.
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...

This is usually tapered tapered off by your doctor by adjusting the dosage gradually over time. talk to your doctor about this.
Avatar f tn Thank you for posting these studies on Topiramate. Do you know of research studies on the withdrawal symptoms of Topiramate when tapered off of? What the statistical numbers are in combination of which withdrawal symptoms were more likely to occur and perhaps the length of time for those symptoms to subside? Also, what the medically suggested taper off of rate is to minimize these effects.

Avatar m tn The beta blockers I take (I'm prescribed atenolol [Tenormin] and propranolol [Inderal] for my tremor, and coincidentally, I am on clonazepam for anxiety issues (though if it I didn't have essential tremor, I wouldn't take it daily ― I don't need it so often for my anxiety anymore) and I'm also on topiramate/Topamax which is an anti-convulsant that I've been told by my doctor shows that it can help tremor from ET.

Avatar f tn Like most medications, it is advisable to wean off of Lyrica slowly to prevent these withdrawal symptoms or at least mitigate the bulk of them. You should not quit Lyrica cold turkey because this can cause severe withdrawal symptoms and will make it much harder to get off this drug when you need to.
Avatar m tn Hi, Im 17 and I've had a constant headache for nearly 2 years now and like you have had more scans and tests and medication than I care to remember and nothing was helping. I was then prescribed a drug called topiramate (topamax) which is mainly used for patients with epilepsy, but is also sometimes given to those suffering from migraines. Although what I have is not a migraine they take the edge off the pain and make it more bearable going about the day and making it to college.
