I had an aneurysm ( brain bleed due to a thin artery in a major artery ) 2006., 2 years ago I hurt my back and ankle at work. I use Norco . Lately ( within the last 2 years)., my daughters , my family say I am crazy , bipolar , schizophrenic because I get angry and keep bringing up the past. I sometimes think I'm addicted now but then again I have so much pain . I'm losing all sorts of relationship because of " my anger, and bipolar and not letting go of the past issues that my family and friends have put me through. I get told " you force your help on me and then you bring up the past over and over again and you are toxic . Is Norco doing this or is it because I feel so abused by people who are always getting in trouble and ask for my financial and spiritual help. I get irritated with my daughter who can't seem to be honest , my husband who is such a robot boring person my brother and daughter have ADHD and they drive me NUTTS but when I get angry at them they call me crazy . I'm trying to help an addict but he's not doing anything for himself and keeps having financial and legal issues but when I try to help he says I'm driving him crazy because I keep bringing up the past and scream and yell . I was sexually abused by my dad, my brothers and a few others when I was a kid and my brothers used to beat me. My first husband was an ass he started drinking and gambling so I found a lover and a nasty divorce . My kids can't stand me any more and I get so angry at my brother who smokes , drinks tea and uses opium and is always high. I am always pissed off.
I am a 29 year old female who lives a healthy active lifestyle and isn't predisposed to family balding. I have been on and off this medication for the past 7 months. I took up to 100mg and came off it, then a few weeks later went back on it but only took 75mg. I noticed almost three weeks ago my hair shedding more than usual but didn't think much of it. I went to see my psychiatrist last week and the first thing he said to me was that I "looked different." I instantly knew he meant my hair so I told him my hair seemed to be falling out. He was instantly concerned and told me to stop taking the 75mg. The next day I woke up to a very noticeable thinning head of hair than the day before. I immediately googled Topamax and hair loss and found many reviews with people sharing almost the same story I had. I was not made aware that hair loss was a side effect of this medication by my doctor or any of the websites I looked at when googling side effects of Topamax. If I had been made aware that losing my hair was a possibility while taking Topamax I would have NEVER gone on it in the first place. I am overwrought and scared my hair is gone for good or won't return to its normal growth and texture. I wake up to less and less hair each day with no exaggeration. It's only been a week and two days since I've gone off Topamax. I am now looking into having to invest in buying a wig. I am so pissed with my doctor and the manufacturers who distribute a medication that causes such emotionally distressing side effects. I never read anything about hair loss as a side effect of Topamax until I had to specifically google, "Topamax and hair loss." I have read countless reviews from others suffering without their hair who are just waiting on a hope and a prayer that their hair will grow back too. Does anyone have any positive and reassuring stories of their experience with alopecia caused by Topamax and hair regrowth? I would very much appreciate it. I wish everyone the best on their recovery. You're not alone.
