Re: Anyone take Topamax/Topiramate/Trokendi? Questions for y

*long post incoming- sorry!* I took Topiramate for 5(ish) years for migraines. Within the first 48 hours, I had a "pins and needles" feeling in my face - this remained until I was weaned off the medication. My face was in constant pain but I was told by numerous neurologists that I should...

Re: Anyone take Topamax/Topiramate/Trokendi? Questions for y

ame- I'm not sure it's the meds. I think viruses have mutated and become stronger. I am normally a pretty healthy person, but I have been sick since the week before Thanksgiving. I can't seem to fight off this virus and secondary bacterial infections. I'm now just finishing my third round of antibi...

Re: Anyone take Topamax/Topiramate/Trokendi? Questions for y

Depends on what you're taking it for, but have you tried Neurontin? It's a similar med often used for the same things. I think it has a less crappy side-effect profile. I confess I've not taken Topamax though, I'm currently working my way slowly up on the Neurontin for nerve pain. I've taken it bef...

Anyone take Topamax/Topiramate/Trokendi? Questions for you--

So I've been on some form of this (right now TrokendiXR) for about 5 years, and I have noticed a SERIOUS decline in immunity since I've been on it. I know that there's some known side effects--confirmed by at least one doctor and the pharmacist--regarding "bronchial infections" and "u...

This. It will lead to more issues later, so I am glad you're sending it in for a redo. It's worth it to do it now.

Re: resizing conundrum

So after a few days, I have noticed that it's near impossible to get my ring over my knuckle unless my fingers are shrunk from the cold. I took it to a jeweler, and it was confirmed that it was under a size 4.5:( It's a platinum solitaire, and I want to bump it up to a 4.75 so I can stack with it. ...
