Update on visit with doc re: Topamax titration

Recommended Posts

At the current 75mg of Topamax, my mind seems to slowed down enough where I can focus somewhat better and have a longer attention span. My mind doesn't seem to wander off as much, and I daydream less. I should get more improvements as I get to 100mg and even more as I stay on there longer.

Now, when I was at 200mg the previous time I took Topamax, I found it harder to take in information. It was like I couldn't comprehend stuff as well.

So, with your current dosage of 150mg, I would give that level a month and see how it does for your cycles. The ask you doc about titrating higher if needed if that dosage doesn't provide adequate coverage for your cycling.

Wow, this report was so positive I kinda got sucked in till '6 brought back reality.  You have whipsawed this week, emotionally.

I think you need to take things real slow and see what direction things go. Stay at this level. Don't muck up your experiment by changing the meds too often.  I haven't taken this med, but my experience is that one needs to wait at least 3-4 weeks and more likely 6 to  let the drug stabilize, brain stabilize and finally mood stabilize. 

If you feel good fine, let things alone and see if any trends develop.
