From this study (5 days ago):
Tried to go off the topamax in Nov/ Dec. While down to 25MG BID, I was hot and sweaty and gaining 20-30 lbs without extra consumption (which was very unusual.. Now I am back up to 75mg BID due to the increase in weight gain and the increase of migraines having put me in the hospital. But, even though the weather is not AS cold as it was and my thermostat is set 5 degrees higher than it was then, I am freezing. My hands, my nose, my feet, I cannot get them warm, and then when I do, I feel like I am having a short blast of hot flashes and then back to freezing.. Could this be the topamax and will or could it get better???
From this study (1 week ago):
Depression was extremely low until I got a migraine and took three doses of
Fiorecet in one day. Tiredness and extreme depression the days following.
From this study (1 month ago):
Last June my right lower back itched severely. Thought it was going to be Shingles, which I have had before. No shingles. Spread to left side. Up my back. Now the worst itching, constant and warm, is my breasts. Can this be medication related? Nothing has changed in medication for 8 to 10 years and no new soaps. Never perfumes. No new foods. Nothing new except continual itching. I rub on lotion thinking it is dryness. I drink 8 cups water daily or more. (measured) I can sleep at night, but have occasional night sweats as well. This has continued since June 2013. Help if you can. Thanks

Started with Synthroid around 2002 but did not have any effect. Switched to Armour dosage finally settled at my current. When I started having the gasping fits in the middle of the night, I felt like something that felt like a "film" was across my esophagus. I had been treated for a bought of bronchitis a bit of time before that. I went to the Dr. and was referred to an ENT. He told me that I had reflux and that the coughing had irritated my esophagus. He prescribed one month of Dexilant. That treatment helped and haven't had any gasping episodes since. However still feel sometimes something restricting my swallowing like I have read in other forums on this subject. Wondering now if this is/was a side effect to the Armour....
