krissybyrd on Mar, 10, 2014:
I had a series of 6 strokes on New Years eve and into day and then 2 more in a month. Doctors could not find out why except that I have thick blood they were in my brain stem. But one doctor the last time said that Topamax would kill me and not to take it. Since stopping I am doing much better and have been home for one month now. I hate Topamax.
