Have Been Prescribed Topiramate (Topamax In UK)-What Is Your Experience With This Medication?

Someone has told me that they've read that a lot of people with Fibromyalgia take Topiramate. Is this the case with any of you lovely people?

I was also prescribed Topamax for headaches. I took it for about 2years. I started getting REAL sick, they were even testing me for cancer, and stopped it. I lost 60+ pounds but was SO SICK! If you can avoid it, I would.

I''ve taken it at the beginning of my treatment. It was okay. I was still in a lot of pain though. The doctors were treating me for Fibro, but didn't know it was fibro yet.
