Medication

Posted by Karen b on 12/02/04 at 10:33 (165080)

Can anyone tell me about experiences with Topamax as opposed to Neurontin.
Is 900 milligrams of Neurontin a heavy dose?

Thank you,

Karen,

I tried Topamax, but didn't have any greater success with it than the previous dosage of Neurontin I had been on. Topamax also had an unpleasant side effect for me, so I switched back to higher doses of Neurontin - 2400mg a day. Topamax changed my sense of taste - there were a lot of things I couldn't eat or drink because they tasted bad while I was taking it.

I take nuerotin 900 a day but sometimes only take 600- like this week my foot has been manageable with tylenol but I have weeks nothing helps. I also take ultracet and it really helps a lot.
