Tried to go off the topamax in Nov/ Dec. While down to 25MG BID, I was hot and sweaty and gaining 20-30 lbs without extra consumption (which was very unusual.. Now I am back up to 75mg BID due to the increase in weight gain and the increase of migraines having put me in the hospital. But, even though the weather is not AS cold as it was and my thermostat is set 5 degrees higher than it was then, I am freezing. My hands, my nose, my feet, I cannot get them warm, and then when I do, I feel like I am having a short blast of hot flashes and then back to freezing.. Could this be the topamax and will or could it get better???
