  • Toperimate has ruined my life!
    On Dec 2, 2015 I started taking Toperimate for severe back pain. Within 48 -36 hours I became very sick - throwing up, nausea, blood in my feces, putrid taste in mouth, blurry eyes, difficulty sleeping, confusion and severe fatigue. I felt like I was poisoning myself! After 7 days I felt no improvement to my back pain and was in pretty bad shape. So I made the decision to go off of it after day 7's dose. On day 9, I woke up with severe VERTIGO. I thought I was dying, it was so bad! Was it a brain tumor (I wondered at the time, horrified!)? I didn't know. I believe (actually I KNOW) it was a side effect of the Toperimate, which can cause vertigo. I also immediately began to feel drunk all the time, even when I wasn't "spinning". I had vertigo and the drunk feeling for 1week and then I went to Urgent Care. The doctor was useless and only gave me Valium. No answers, no improvement. I waited 3 more weeks, desperate, and again went to second UC doctor. This one was competent. He diagnosed me with BVVP ( Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo - which us caused by dislodged calcium crystals in my inner ear.) and set me up to have the Epley Manuever through Vestibular Rehab Physical Therapy. My vertigo was (temporarily) corrected after the first PT visit. Although I was thrilled, I was STILL feeling drunk. I've had both an MRI and MRA to rule out brain rumors, etc. everything, thank God, came out clean. Yes! But I still felt drunk 24/7. 3 weeks after The Physical Therapist corrected my vertigo. It fully came back. I was devastated! But I was able to correct it myself by doing the Epley Maneuver by myself at home. I watched a Youtube Video for instructions. I need to mention that I believe I caused the vertigo to return the second time because the night before it returned, my husband used a vibrating massager on the back of my head/upper neck area because I had pain there. I learned from my PT that the vibrations could have again dislodged the calcium crystals in my inner ear. Strange, right? She said often the PTs use vibration to force the crystals back where they're supposed to be. Apparent, the opposite is true too. Well, today is February 2, 2015. I haven't had a recurrence of my vertigo but I STILL FEEL DRUNK 24/7!!!! Thanks Toperimate and it's makers, and the doctor that gave it to me. It was supposedly a "conservative approach" to my back pain, but the question is......will I ever feel normal again? If I do heal from this, I will try to remember to update this webpage again. Good luck to anyone who experiences this problem.
  • Sleep paralysis while on medrol and norco
    On my 5th day of my dose pack about an hour after taking medrol and a norco I experienced sleep paralysis for the first time. This is the 3rd dose pack in 2 months and I just switched back to norco from Ultram the same day I started the latest dose pack. I felt unusually sleepy before taking my bedtime dose, but felt awake shortly after taking it. My sleep habits have been fluctuating due to sciatic pain which is why I am prescribed this medication.
  • Urea urine increased while taking topamax
    I was on Topamax to lose weight. It worked for me, I lost weight but my blood urea increased. I have to stop taking it.
  • Massive aggression within first 4 days at 50mg (1 response)
    am only taking 50mg and have only been taking it for 4 days(this is the evening of the 4th day)as a preventative for migraine headaches that I have suffered from from 16 years. I have had pins and needles in my hands and feet as well as spontaneous crying fits since day 2 and Major aggression since yesterday. With normally an insurmountable amount of patience with my 1 year old son, I outright yelled at him last night. This is unacceptable. I have never felt such quick and sudden rage over nothing before, well, over anything before.
  • Heavy sweating during sleep
    Pain killers like Tylenol 3, vicodin 20 years, Valium and Soma 12 years. Sweat heavy during sleep.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • I had some hair thinning over the past 10+ years and was told it was due to HBP and medications. Since taking phentermine and topiramate for weight loss along with the other meds hair loss has tripled at a radical rate. I stopped taking topiramate about a month ago and still the hair keeps falling out. When will it stop and will my hair grow back. The doctor recommended 5% minoxidil along with the vitamins I'm taking. I've been taking 10,000 mcg. Biotin, Hair Skin & Nails, E and Fish oil (used to help reduce the cholesterol).

  • Wondering if sinusitis is a side effect of methotrexate?

    Altmed on Sep, 16, 2014:

    I've wondered if respiratory problems while taking Plaquenil is from parasites (non-malarial) are being chased into other tissues?

    Sweet wormwood seems to work better than Plaquanil for some.

    It would be interesting to see a study of those using wormwood instead of Plaquanil for RA.

    Interesting that becoming I'll elsewhere (lungs, feet pain/discoloration, hands/wrists) seems to increase in some after taking Plaquanil for a few weeks to months after starting even relatively "low doses".
