I have been battling migraines off and on for a long time. But just recently I have been having consistent headaches every single day for the past month. And I know you all know how frustrating that is!!!!! It totally impedes on your life! I went to my doctor he put me on Ambtriptlene (sp?) and that was awful! I was so exhausted and still had the headahces!!!! But I just took my first does of Topamax and woke up this morning without a headache for the first time! I cannot express how gooooood that feels!!!! It was SO easy to get out of bed and start my day! Not to mention I am finally acting like myself again! I read a lot of your posts on Topamax and am glad to see more positives than negatives! I did wonder though, if any people who are not considered overweight experienced any weight loss.
I also wondered, if any of you have tried what my doctor suggested to me....taking 400mg of B2 vitamins? He said in a small study many people found the results to be just as good as any of the other medicines. Has anyone out there tried this vitamin therapy?
