That's my question? Does it mean upping the topamax, and if so, by how much?

Hi,
Yes it means going up or down on the topa in small amounts. I took this from another post which is based on the book
week 1 - 1 x 25mg in afternoon
week 2 - 2 x 25mg in afternoon
week 3 - 1 x 25mg in morning and 2 x 25mg in afternoon
week 4 - 2 x 25mg in morning and 2 x 25mg in afternoon

By week 8 it has you up to 300mg but I think you just have to follow the schedule and see what you can tolerate. Aa lot of people can only handle 150mg in a day.

I'm afraid to type that word - the topa might make me type it as a porno word.

cooking, just go to where your body can handle it and you dont crave the drink and stop.

I don't say the word because I don't know how to pronounce it! LOL! I just say I'll go up a bit more next week if I need to.
