When I had my bipolar diagonosis and the new meds, everything clicked, topamax and bipolar treatment. Topamax at mgs a day in the morning and at night is perfect for me.
My husband and I even have to find new ways to fight. I communicate differently and everything. I know now what it feels like to have normal reactions to normal situations and not have everything blown out of proportion. I was put on Topamax with seruqul for sleeping also.
Too many side effects, and the seroquel makes me sleep for nearly 12 hours when I take topamax and bipolar treatment. My question would be, how fast can I taper off it? Was fun for valtrex and constipation week or so, but not anymore.
So should I reverse the instructions I was given topamax and bipolar treatment start taking it and reactive airways and asthma slowly lower my doses till I can stop? I have been taking Topomax for manic depression for 1 year and a half years. Seroquel for sleep has worked fine. Ambien for nights that nothing works.
I highly recommend Topomax because I am now in my first year of graduate school and doing fine. Never thought I could even sit in a classroom. I am truely happy now. I have lost over 65 pounds topamax and bipolar treatment look fantastic. My outlook is bright and cheerful and I am no longer paraniod all of the time.
It is a miracle medication and you will see the benefits with in six month period. It will happen for you Join Date Oct Location.
I am happy to have found this forum. I began topomax 2 days ago after 4 months on trileptal. I had put on so much weight and was so uncomfortable on trileptal that I was very discouraged. My doctor wanted and still wants to put me on depakote but the idea of more weight gain as well as the health problems associated with that drug scared me off.
Last night my first night off of trileptalI spent the whole night urinating. I lost about 12 pounds. Evidently, the trileptal causes amazing and uncomfortable water retention. But, I am only on 75 mg. Join Date Apr Posts 1. Hi I am taking topamax right now for bipolar and take 50mg in the morning and 50mg at night also for sleep "and" depression I take mg of trazadone. These 2 are a great combo.
Join Date May Posts 1. I have been taking topamax for about 5 weeks now and I love it. The only problem is that I still feel like I am still "missing" something for my depression, topamax and bipolar treatment. How is that trazadone working for you? Join Date May Posts 2. I have been on Topamax for about 6months or more. I just had the dosage doubled to mg at bedtime.
It has made a huge difference for me as well. I have to balance it with Wellbutrin XL during the day for depression and 2 anxiety meds, but hey, together, I am a whole functioning member of society! I am a Mom and a wife and I have a great job. I have started to lose weight slowly with the increased dosage. Trileptal and Depakote just stopped working all at once when I took them.
