Special Sauce

Topamax- Continued

This is more kvetching about Topamax, the Ike Turner of migraine medications.

Man, this taste alteration keeps continuing. I'm sad to report that fatty salty things are next on the list. French fries and Five Guys just don't taste right. They're OK, but they're not the orgasmic little balls of delight that they SHOULD be, and that I know they are. Old Bay seasoning now tastes really weird (odd, because last week it was acceptable), and pretty much any deep-fried anything tastes gross.

Smells are pretty jacked up too. Hot oil especially- walking into Weis is difficult. Seriously... this stuff DOES work, but it's doing a number on my senses.

I've figured out too that while cherry Coke tastes like copper coated sawdust, Dr. Pepper tastes like it should. Hooray!


On a lighter note, I get to play with kitties today.

Anonymous Topamax Side Effects said...

My name is Maree Sneed and i would like to show you my personal experience with Topamax.

I am 27 years old. Have been on Topamax for 3 months now. Had severe debilitating migraines at least 2x a week. Had to stay in bed. I have a 7 year old. I was missing out on everything. Now I can get out of bed and get on with my day. I am down to maybe 1 migraine a month and it is functional not crippling.

I have experienced some of these side effects -
weight loss, no appetite, severe mood swings, emotional, yucky taste to cola, thirsty, thirsty, thirsty, extreme fatique

I hope this information will be useful to others,
Maree Sneed
