  • Perceived effectiveness for Migraine headaches: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 500 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: The reason for taking this medication in the beginning was to prevent/treat migraine headaches...I was taking topamax. Then the dosage was was increased gradually by my neurologist until I reached the 500mg I am on today to also treat the seizures. I was admitted to the hospital for testing in November 09 and released with a prescription that it could be filled with the generic and I have had headaches, break through seizures and literally felt as though I have had "bugs" crawling in my head!! I and my epileptologist have tried to work with my insurance company to get me back on the brand name topamax but obviously they aren't budging on this one so I guess I will be taking generic and dealing with the side effects of this... anyone have any suggestions I would love to hear from you . I don't understand how they can approve me taking the brand before I went in the hosital and because the prescription was signed in the wrong blank they won't approve it now...!!
