A patient mentioned, "Rated for EpilepsyReport. I'm so angry that Topamax came on the market. I was one of the guinea pigs for it and it barely helped with the seizures. I was so out of it and felt like a zombie. Took the meds in the morning and then slept all morning and when I finally got to feeling ok it was time to take another dose. Verbage was slurred and I couldn't think of words. My eyes were drooped and I was very slow reacting. I also felt severely depressed. It seemed like my neurologist was more concerned about how much of it I could handle and if I took more if it would finally control the seizures. When I finally got off of it I felt like a new person and others told me that I looked like a new person. The doctor was more concerned about the drug than he was for me as a patient. Doctors are paid extra by the drug companies but they don't always do what is best for the patient. It should've never gotten on the market, and I noticed that all of my side effects were not listed in the small print when it did come on the market."
