Shortness of breath & cough from Topiramate?

I just upped my dose and am taking 12.5 mg in the morning and 25 mg at night. I am noticing some shortness of breath and a cough and wondered if it was normal?? I also can’t sleep at night and am having some wild dreams. I started very low on Jan 3rd and am trying to work my way up slowly.


There is a guy in the “success stories” thread who had a similar experience, he wasnt able to breathe at a certain dose, so he had to lower the dose, and he eventually made a full recovery. Hopefully someone with more experience can help soon.

On 25mg I noticed a shortness of breath myself. I was always trying to take a deep breath. Before all this, I was pretty active and went to the gym 5-6x a week, so I thought it had to be the topamax. Im also very sensitive to so…
