Side effects still the same and haven't subsided... Will be requesting a change in medication soon if no improvement. Also, with reduced dosage down to 25mg. morning and 25mg. evening, I'm having more seizures.

I've been on Topiramate for now well over 12 weeks and reached a dosage of 100mg. daily (i.e. two doses of 50mg. each).  It definitely has helped my headaches, but once again, anger, depression, tiredness, lower back pain, heartburn, thinning of hair, and more has set in.

My Neurologist now wants dosages reduced again to 25mg. twice daily to see if the side effects will subside. This will be commenced soon.

I've only been on Topiramate now for 4 weeks and just reached a dosage of 75mg. so trying to get used to this medication. My Neurologist requested me to get to 100mg. daily. Only then can I give a proper evaluation. So far it has helped with the frequency of seizures and headaches.
