    I am going to LOVE it and do well on it. I am on 25 mg 2x a day to start. So far no ill effects - this is my 3rd day. I did notice the strange taste to soda right away. Which is no great loss to me. Really hoping I have that other awful side effect of weight loss too............wle

    i have been on topamax for several months now. it was
    prescribed for migraines, but it has definitely
    helped the FM pain! yes, taking it makes beer and
    cokes taste flat. i've also noticed i hardly have any
    desire for sweets. on the down side, it can affect
    your memory. but since fibrofog already does that...!
