I've been on Topiratmate 50mg for a month now and have seen a good drop in my migraine episodes so far. This is my first ever medication for my migraines and am shocked something worked this quick as I suffered for so long. Anyone else have quick success with their medication?

I had quick success with beta blockers. Unfortunately, they also lowered my heart rate to the lower 30s just as quickly. While they were great for the migraines, I could never get to a dose that was low enough to keep my heart rate w/i acceptable levels, and work on the headaches. Quite a disappointment.

I myself have been on Topomax for over a year and it has worked wonderfully as long as taken as directed. My dr did up my dosage back in June because the severity of my migraines, but it helped as well.
