    Who's still on Topamax?

    I'm curious as to how many (successful) long term moderators are still on Topamax? I'm trying this stuff out again and I seem to be tolerating it better (finally). I do believe it's because I am drinking lots of water and taking most of the supps. In the book RJ puts a lot of faith in the topamax. Please reply with some quick blurbs. Thanks Keke

    Who's still on Topamax?

    Hi Keke,

    I tried Topa a year ago and had great sucess with it. I didn't continue it due to financial reasons but still went 60 days AF without it.
    I'm afraid to say that I can feel myself slipping back into some old habits so I've taken the bull by the horns and am now trying Baclofen.
    I chose Baclofen this time mostly due to all the great success stories I've read on the threads and because it can also help my other addictions.

    Hope that helps:-)

    Keke,

    I know of several AFers that are still on Topa, but they are subscribers and seldom post outside of subs.

    However, the two I know of for sure have been on Topamax for a couple or more years. Both say how much Topa has helped them overcome their cravings.

    (I'm allergic to it.)

    hth,
    Cindi

    Cinders,
    Wish I could help but I was never physcially addicted to alcohol so never had extreme cravings or any withdrawal symptoms so felt meds weren't needed by me.

    Wanted to reply so you didn't feel ignored with your post but can't offer any help. Sorry!

    I'm still on Topa.
    Have been on 100mg per day since I started it back in o5.
    Works for me...

    I do have my days,... but nothing like I used to.
    I'm reliable & accountable now.

    Thanks Snbm, Eve, Dee, Cind, & Jude: Not exactly a scientific sampling, but I really appreciate your responses. I'm hoping it will be a wonder drug for me!! My doc said that 75 mg should probably be my magic number so, I'll probably try to titrate up to that. Took my first ever 50 mg at once an hour ago and my tummy feels rumbly and mouth is cottonish. Had very little side effects with the 25 mgs last week and am day 7 af. Did have some irritability last night, but got throught it.....yeh. I have to beg out of a bar social next week (I think it is too early). Buy now. Keke

    I'm still on topomax, since Jan or Feb 2008 for 1.5 years. I take75 mg in am and 50 mg at 4 PM. Initially had tingles in toes, trouble word-finding (still can happen, but not more so than most my age), thought I had hair loss for a bit but think I was overly worried about it.... it's fine now.
    I find it helps me be satisfied with 2 or so drinks where I used to not want to stop until I'd
    had a whole bottle (5 drinks).

    Ask

    PS You might try posting on Topa thread for more responses
