I’m 9 months into my struggle with the usual array of symptoms mentioned on this forum: Brain fog, cognitive dysfunction, light sensitivity, dizziness (especially with movement), concentration, fatigue etc. I was most recently referred to a Professor of Ears, Nose and Throat who as you may have guessed concluded MAV as my diagnosis.
Having previously tried sibelium with no luck, he has prescribed Topiramate at 25mg going up to 50mg after one week. What I don’t understand is how this drug works - the side effects of the drug and often the posters on this forum state that brain fog and cognitive problems are associated with taking topiramate. How, therefore, does this drug help in reducing my brain fog and cognitive dysfunction rather than adding to my already muddled head.
