  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Stopped taking Topamax about 5 days ago, feel like I'm going through withdrawal. I feel like some sort of junkie, coughing and miserable every day, still can't sleep for more than an hour or two at a time, something's wrong with my throat or lungs, I don't know what's going on. All I know is that Topamax didn't even treat my migraines, just left me with a list of new problems. These side effects wouldn't be worth it even if the drug -did- work.


  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I cannot seem to find the right Dr. I have had two great dr.'s and both in a timely manner left so I am in a middle of the road county clinic with a very un-happy dr. who does not listen to what I am saying. These conditions are not new to me and were treated very well until I lost my prior Docs. I have great insurance, in fact almost as good as it can get for a disabled person and the doctor assigned to me basically re-arranged my meds and made chronic decisions without even seeing my records. All the regular medications, maintenace medications I was taking are gone now and I was left with what I have listed. unless someone has any advice, I am going to file a grievence and let my Insurance company find me a doctor. Its almost like playing the lottery. Oh, on another note. This same doctor opened an incision on my inner highest thigh without numbing me first. Said it would do no good. Wow, he also carved down a 1/4 inch then extended it, packed with iodine gauze and handed me 3 oversized bandages. Then refused adequate medication. I know they heard me screaming in the waiting room. I want a real doctor! A~
