Hi all, first time post.
I have been diagnosed recently with Vestibular Migraines ( neurologist) and have been prescribed 25 mg of Topamax. I have been taking this single pill before bed for 1 month.
I haven’t really noticed any differences?
I did sleep great and now only for about 5 hours, then awake and tired.
The dizziness/ unsteady feeling is always with me when walking around or in meetings. Supermarkets and hardware stores nearly floor me etc etc.
Still have the constant feeling of being hungover.
Still have brain fog nearly all day.
Loud noises, like a dog bark or loud bass, noisy restaurants, make my brain pulse ?
Tensing my neck muscles also makes me dizzy ie hard massaging bread dough, or undoing a tight jar etc ( straining)
I don’t want to go out and do anything as it’s just not enjoyable fighting this constantly.
I have to concentrate really hard to drive etc.
However I force myself to keep doing most things.
The only small change is maybe, just maybe the headache that normally comes with the bad unsteadiness is reduced. The headache has never really been that bad anyway.
Do I need a higher dose?
Does it take longer to work?
Does this drug help with the dizziness or have other have better luck with something else.
I am a 47 year old male, 6 foot 5, 135kgs and no their health conditions.
Any ideas would be lovely.
