Default Re: Medication for migraines

I suffer from migraine with aura. I had taken topamax for about 10 years (prescribed by my neurologist) and it did work really well for stopping my migraines. That said, one of the nicknames for topamax is "dope-a-max". It can make you very "foggy". I was taken off of it a couple of months ago because the neurologist thought it could be causing my confusion and memory loss etc. Now I know that I have fibromyalgia it can be explained, but I'm still going to stay off of it. I don't need anything potentially contributing to my mental fogginess, lol!
