I'm maxed out on Lithium and Cymbalta. Also taking Lamictal - Trazadone, seroquel or valium as needed. During a recent extended hypo-manic state the doc asked me to try topomax. i've tried an array of other medications that I've not been able to tolerate.
I have friends using the med for migraine control and have had kidney stones which they beieve is a result of the medication. My understanding is that there is only a 3% - 5% greater change of stones with the drugs.
Since the tratment of BP is a secondary benefit to this drug, I wonder how effective it really is.
Any thoughts appreciated.
