What is it for? Are there any side effects?

I used to take it for migraines but stopped because i could not stay awake while on it at all. But i have read they also use it to treat symptoms of bipolar.

Thanks. My psych prescribed it 2 days ago but I'm planning to stop it as it is causing constipation.

I took it for anxiety I believe but it freaked me out so I had to stop taking it. It made my heart beat too slow and gave me a hard time breathing. I thought my heart was just gonna stop beating or that I was gonna stop being able to breathe. So my psychiatrist took me off it immediately. Horrible horrible medication. I do not recommend it.

I finally stopped the Topamax at the advice of my psych as it was causing cognitive dulling.
