    Normally this happens when we have improper diet, have stressful schedule, drink too much beverages, less sleep or may be lack of sound sleep.
    It is necessary at this point to pay attention
    1. to have NUTRITIOUS diet.
    2. to drink sufficient water.
    3. to go to the bed on time so can have 6-8 hrs rest
    4. Most important Meditiate. "Mindfullness in plane English" a book can help properly in this case.
    5. Please choose slow but permanent solution rather than seeking tablets mostly sleeping pills as quick solution.

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • During 5 month period of taking Topomax, I lost all muscle tone, had severe arthritis like symptoms. Went to physical therapy for 6 weeks due to pain and immobility. i now Wear a Tens unit as needed for really bad days, and now have to see a Chiropractor on a regular basis due to lower back and neck pain and stiffness. Prior to taking this drug, I was able to do the P90x workout routine daily. Now, walking, sitting, standing and laying hurts. I want my life back. I have started working out again slowly, but still no muscle tone. My days are cut very short due to zero energy.
