  • 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.
  • Bone pain whilst taking letrozole
    Before having breast cancer I walked 10 miles a week, and did a 40 min exercise
    routine. Having had a lumpectomy followed by 15 radiation treatments, and then
    prescribed letrozole for 10 years, I can no longer do my 40 min exercise routine, nor the power walking that I have done for so many years.
    I suffer severe bone pain and fatigue.
    I have come off the medication (3 wks now) after taking letrozole for 6mths.
    I can no longer tolerate the awful side affects, and Im just hoping the cancer
    does not come back.
  • 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.
  • Imetrix verses butalb/acet/caffeine
    I have taken both Imitrex and Butalb/acet/caffeine and I have to say that Imitrex works far better than the other one! The substitute I was given for Imitrex doesn't even touch my migraine pain.
  • Wheezing stopped after topamax sessesion
    Wheezing noted by primary physician in this non-smoker. Stopped Topamax per doctor's instruction. 48 hours later was examined by physician and noted that wheezing stopped.
