I went to see the neurologist today and he prescribed Topamax for my headaches. I always have one 24/7 but have just been living with it. I have been having bad migraines for the last few months, but he said this would prevent headaches. I have go to say that I took this medicine at 8:30 am and for the first time in months, I do not even have a low grade headache. He also told me it would help a little with weight loss. Does anyone else take this and how did it work for you? He tested my right occiptal nerve in the back of my neck with a needle and boy did I want to kick him. He offered a cortisone shot or the pills, I went with the pills. lol.
