Default Taken Anti-seizure Drugs???

Has anyone here taken them as a migraine preventative? Or, if you have taken them for any reason, may I ask what side effects you had? I am especially interested in Topamax. Thanks so much.

I took Topamax for a while for migraines.

For me, I felt spacey constantly. If I wasn't actively thinking about something/performing a task, I would would stare out into nothing mind blank. I also had the metallic taste in my mouth.

But as a pharmacist, I have tons of patients that love it and have absolutely no complaints.

Jilu, I tried it for a couple of weeks for migraine prevention, and I felt spaced out and awful, very weak and zero appetite (I need to lose weight but not like that!) Thanks for your reply!

Anyone else?
