I am taking this for cluster headache prophylaxis. Not sure it is doing anything for the fibro. It is helping with the gabapentin for the cluster headaches.1/20/2013 at 11:37 AM

I felt WONDERFUL when I took this medication (and I lost a LOT of the extra weight I had gained) but I had to stop it b/c I developed kidney stones... :-(((5/12/2011 at 02:24 PM

Dr. prescribed Topamax for chronic migraines. 4 pills per day. Just 2 pills into the first day put me in a state of chronic panic attack. 9/14/2010 at 09:11 AM

Topamax helped for awhile but the migraines eventually broke through anyway, and higher doses of topamax caused cognitive side effects. It also causes weight loss (but that was ok!). 5/28/2010 at 01:23 PM
