2 weeks 37.5 Topamax & nagging cough

I tried going up to 50 mg for one night and didn’t sleep the entire night because the cough was horrible and the doctor had me go back down to 37.5 mg and I am still having a daily and nightly cough. It isn’t as bad as when I was at the 50 for the one night, but still bothersome.

I need to try and get to a therapeutic dose on this drug and am having such a horrible time trying to do so. I still am extremely dizzy riding in the car and it hasn’t helped my headaches yet either. I don’t want to give up yet, but am getting very discouraged.

There are a few people on this board who had the visual vertigo/driving problems and were able to start driving again with this drug and I can’t remember who. Can anyone tell me who they are?
