it quite is the way for the pharmaceutical companies to make further and further funds - as a results of fact now you may desire to take yet another pill to repair the ingredient results of the 1st pill etc etc. Then in some years, you will choose for a kidney transplant and could be on meds perpetually!!!

I've been on Paxil for about four years now and I'd have to say the worst side effect has been the loss of sexual desire and weight gain. Also, if you forget a pill or two, the dizziness sucks! You get all spacey and can't concentrate. Paxil doesn't make you more anxious, it actually helps with anxiety. At least it does me. It is actually supposed to be more for anxiety than depression. But you should explore your options and be sure to be accurate with your doctor about your symptoms/feelings. Good luck feeling better. Answered by Lenny Kailiponi 1 year ago.
Brand name: Topamax Pronounced: TOW-pah-macks Generic name: Topiramate --------------------------------------... Why is Topamax prescribed? Topamax is an antiepileptic drug, prescribed to control both the mild attacks known as partial seizures and the severe tonic-clonic convulsions known as grand mal seizures. It is typically added to the treatment regimen when other drugs fail to fully control a patient's attacks. Topamax is also prescribed for the prevention of migraine headaches (also known as prophylactic treatment). However, due to a lack of studies, it's not known whether the drug can treat acute migraine attacks. --------------------------------------... Most important fact about Topamax Do not abruptly stop taking Topamax. If the drug isn't withdrawn gradually, the frequency of your seizures could increase. --------------------------------------... How should you take Topamax? It is important to take Topamax exactly as prescribed. It can be taken with or without food. Avoid breaking the tablets; the medication has a bitter taste. Topamax capsules may be swallowed whole, or the capsule may be opened and its contents sprinkled on a teaspoonful of soft food. To open the capsule, hold it so you can read the word "top" and carefully twist off the clear portion of the capsule. The drug and food mixture should be swallowed whole and not chewed. Do not store the mixture for future use. Topamax increases your risk of developing kidney stones. To prevent this problem, be sure to take Topamax with plenty of fluids. --If you miss a dose... Take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular schedule. Never take two doses at once. --Storage instructions... Store Topamax at room temperature in a tightly closed container. Protect the tablets from moisture. --------------------------------------...

From personal experience, the worse side effect is feeling dazed and confused most of the time.When I was taking it, I felt so stupid, like i was in a brain fog all the time. I talked to another lady who takes it also,and she felt the same way.Also made me very anxious. I took it for severe headaches from occipital neuralgia. Answered by Diego Yupe 1 year ago.
