So, far Topamax has been working out pretty well. I haven't really experienced any side effects with the exception of carbonated beverages tasting like metal. But in all honesty, I could do without soda if I had to. For the past two weeks, I only took 1 pill a day. Today is the day that I up my dosage to 2 pills a day. I am hoping that things continue to go as well. I will keep you updated.
