Hopefully soon which manufacturers are passably reliable will shake out.
whatever APOT is in the 200mg pill of toprimate SUCKS ASS.
I've been on it for over a week, waiting to start my zoloft. (my new ocd med, so i can hopefully start to get better) and i've woke up at almost reliably 3am nearly every morning with some mid level migraine. I CAN'T AFFORD THE RELPAX FOR THE DAMN MIGRAINES.
I tell the pharmacy, and they say, "well maybe it's your allergies."
No you dumb shits - it's not. I've not been taking any allergy meds since I got rid of my cat! (sorry, cat had to go to a new home. down to one, and she doesn't get into my stuff. so allergy is under control)
This is all happening ONLY SINCE THE GENERIC MED CHANGE.
I was taking 200 mg of TEVA 25 mg pills and was just fine.
This change happens and you guys say it's nothing, no one else has complained. I mention it again, and you say maybe it's my allergies. I can't take it. I'm on this shit for the migraines and there's SOMETHING IN IT GIVING ME THE DAMN MIGRAINES.
You guys have heard me on here praising the topimax. I love it. I'm so happy about it but right now I HATE IT.
I HATE THE APOT TOPRIMATE WITH EVERY FIBER OF MY SOUL.
I am taking the brand name samples till my doctor can get my insurance or the pharmacy to switch to another generic.
This is B.S.
I can't take it.
I'd rather wean off and not take it at all than to suffer migraines EVERY DAY. I'm calling my doctor at 8am on the dot.
(i'm being responsible about it, and i don't plan on stopping it. I need to take it.)
any one else having this mess with apot?
For Brain Cooties: topmax 300mg, adderall40-60mg, geodon 40mg (target is 160), lamictal 200mg. PRN'S: Ativan, Klonopin, & I traded my Xanax for the Ativan.
Relpax or Immitrex (migraines). Norco (degenerative discs, need surgery) & soma that I never take.
Dx: Ultra rapid cycling bipolar, non-specific. OCD & ADHD. Got BP dx fall of 2012, pdoc has "noted" it since 2008 Past Rx: cymbalta (bad migraines) abilify (did nada, bad vision), risperdal (quit 1/10 due to extreme weight gain) frovra (doesn't work worth a crap. waste of $). geodon didn't work first time around, but I wasn't "this bad" that time around either. So far, the cocktail of topa, lamo & geo are making the biggest difference with the extreme swings, and fast frequency. I hope they help with the bad thoughts sooner rather than later.
