Topiramate Withdrawal

What Is Topamax (Topiramate)?

Topamax, also known by its generic name topiramate, is an anticonvulsant and antiepileptic medication which is used to prevent and control seizures. Topiramate has also been found effective in preventing migraines and decreasing how often patients experience them. Some common side effects of Topamax use are tiredness, drowsiness, dizziness, loss of coordination, tingling of the hands/feet, loss of appetite, bad taste in your mouth, diarrhea, weight loss, confusion, slowed thinking, trouble concentrating, nervousness, memory problems and speech problems. If any of these side effects get worse or last a long time, talk to your doctor.

Uses for Topiramate

Topiramate is a medication taken to treat seizures and prevent migraines. It is known as an anticonvulsant or antiepileptic drug. It is not used to treat migraines but decreases how often you get them. It is usually taken two times a day and can have serious side effects and withdrawal symptoms.

Kelly does not realize the harm she has caused herself when she took more topiramate pills at one time than directed. Her migraine has not gone away and she now feels worse than ever. The medical team at the hospital is assessing her for an overdose.

Topamax Withdrawal Duration: How long does it last?

There is really no telling how long the withdrawal from Topamax is going to last. Most people suggest that it takes anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to be free of withdrawal symptoms. The half-life of the drug ranges from 19 to 25 hours, meaning it could take over 2 days for the drug to leave your system. Most reports suggest that there isn’t a protracted withdrawal syndrome associated with Topamax, so no need to panic.

How long did your side effects last after tapering off Topamax?

 was on topamax for about 3 months and at 75 mg. This drug was highly changing my mood and personality and it was only mildly effective at helping the migraines. I spoke with my doctor and he told me to wean off by 25 mg every 4 days. I took my last pill on day 12. I am currently 9 days free of Topamax but I am still dealing with pretty intense muscle spasms (eye, leg, feet) and I seem to feel dizzy and almost a little bit like a panic attack. I was wondering does anyone know how long it would take for this to wear off? I was only on the drug 3 months. I still fear I could have a seziure and I wonder if I weaned off too quickly. I am also a bit of a worry wart so that doesn't help any of my problems.
