    I love the topamax. I started with 25 mg 1x day for a week in the afternoon. I am on week two and am taking 2 25 mg 1x day in the afternoon. Basically I'm following the dosing schedule that is laid out in the My Way Out book. Get yourself a good pill splitter at a pharmacy, they are not expensive and you can split the doses effectively that way.

    Yes, my doc was very supportive. I took the MWO book in with me and explained the program and made a follow up appt. for one month after so he only gave me one month RX to begin with. Because he was not familiar with this method of treatment this way he can do blood work after one month and assess how I'm doing before prescribing more. We are both comfortable this way.

    The Topa started working for me day one. I was doing the Hypnotherapy too, but I'm easily suggestible.

    I recently read that Topa is not having the results they want... and it's being changed...

    I would tell you Naltrexone... that's what I started and it works!!!! Good luck...
