    Hey!!!

    I started with a WONDERFUL Pain Management Doctor back in January who took me off of Neurontin and switched me to Topamx. I started at 25mg for 2 wks, then to 50 for 2 wks, now I'm at 100mg. I LOVE IT!!!! Weight loss has been safe and steady, it helps me sleep, I take it in one pill at bedtime, mu legs feel SO much better, I havent;t ONE SINGLE migraine since I started!!! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm hoping he will up it down the road . . . . .I do have a dry mouth, just gets me to drink more water, soem things it has changed my taste for. And I occasionally get the tingly toes, but that ain't nothing compared to the neuropothy I was dealing with in my legs before!!!

    I pray it works for you!!

    IT WILL IT WILL IT JUST HAS TO!!! :)
