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 My anxeity attacks feel more like all of my electrical circuitry is shorting out and getting ready to overload. I literally feel as if I am going to explode mentally. Could be the meds. I would go talk with your doc.
Avatar m tn I quit the Topiramate and had severe withdrawal symptoms that put me in the E.R. Blood work, urinalysis, chest xray, and head CT w/out contrast all checked out fine. I then had a follow up with the neuro who looked extremely puzzled. I told him that I think that anxiety may be the root of my problems. Was it right for me to tell him this? Is it possible for worry and anxiety to really mess someone up this bad? He gave me free Lexapro but I refuse to take it.
Avatar f tn Hello there, Indeed mood stabilizers like gabapentin, pregabalin, topiramate are used in benzos withdrawal because they have anticonvulsive proprieties and they also can help with anxiety. The anticonvulsive proprieties will avoid the risk any seizure that could happen during a benzos withdrawal and their mood stabilizing effect are linking to the GABA receptors which are the same receptors that benzos are targeting.
Avatar m tn Feeling great. No withdrawal symptoms.
Avatar m tn Cymbalta withdrawal returned - space-out, zombie-like, and fell back to sleep about an hour after I woke. Very low energy and unable to concentrate very well. It faded some after 1pm and I was able to run some errands, but I can't get any meaningful work done today.

758387 tn?1387093311 Strange head stuff--like really strange. I mean, I had a good day--woke up, got over to Mom's, meditated, chakra stuff, what else? Washed clothes, organized a little....but the head stuff is weird---feels a little like my head is drowning or something. Don't know what that's about.....even seems to interfere with the audio stuff that I listen to. I took more F and E today (monday) and juiced, trying to be more conscientious of the supplements. Is it effexor stuff?

Avatar f tn I'm day 5 into taking Topiramate 25mg at night for migraine prevention. My migraine is a daily pressure headache at the base of my skull. I have Chiari malformation type 1 but neurosurgeon says I don't need surgery, thankfully. He and my neurologist advised i try Topiramate as Amitriptyline didn't suit me (made me suicidal) and my asthma prevents them trying me on beta blockers.

Avatar f tn Having been diagnosed with Atypical Migranes, I had a twenty-four hour EEG (which was preceded by a sleep deprived EEG and a regular EEG) I am now told I have abnormal electrical activity in the left front temporal region of the brain. However, I had no symptoms of any kind during these EEGs. I am traveling and will not see my neurology group for two months. Is it possible that I have had this condition my entire life--I am 67 years old?
Avatar n tn Withdrawal symptoms from lamotrigine continue. Back on full does tonight. Enough socializing w/parents already...back to school for kids is an intense time for moms. Forgetful today, but not upset about it: part of "just being"? Scattered and agitated in Tx.
1232362 tn?1333135406 Hi, Abruptly stopping Topamax or Topiramate may lead to withdrawal side effects such as confusion, loss of hearing or sight, fear, panic, convulsions, difficulty talking, falling down, seizure and other associated symptoms like eye rolling or fluttering, foot stomping, lip smacking, grunting or making sounds, shaking, stiffening, sweating, tremors, and twitching. 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 There do not appear to be definitive reports in the literature regarding the length of time you should expect to have side effects when taking topiramate. The symptoms you are experiencing are common with topiramate and most commonly occur with higher doses and during rapid titration (build up of dosing). The side-effects are dose related and I would recommend you discuss with your doctor prior to any further increase.
