OK, migraine is no usually treated by psychologists or psychiatrists using Tomopax. You really should call and discuss this with your prescribing doc, who should have discussed potential side-effects, their time-scale and how to handle them, when writing the prescription - that's part of what he was paid for

Hi Lami - I used Topamax for a while for the same reason and it did not agree with me at all. I had the same side effects as well as extreme tiredness, taste perversion and tingling hands and feet. I stuck it out for 8 weeks and it never got better. Having said that an aquantance got over the sde effects after about 4 months.
For me the dilibitating migraines were preferable to the way the topamax made me feel.
