    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 (5 months ago):

  • The symptoms 1 and 2 have been worse over the past 2 weeks. I have had the nasal dryness for about 4 months and use a nasal water spray to help relieve this as this is probably as side effect of the Topamax ??
