I've been prescribed Topamax by my G.P this week for a combination of migraine and sciatica, mostly sciatica. She started me off at 50mg twice a day, that was monday and yesterday I had to up the dose to 100mg twice a day. Hopefully i won't have to increase the dose any more.
I've read that this drug doesn't go well with the LC way of eating, mainly I believe because it is known to decrease the appetite in some people. And this is happening to me. Yesterday I ate 2 french fries and one lemon slice and today I've had nothing at all and it's already after 4pm. I just am not hungry and have no desire to eat. Since I started this med I've been totally pain free for the first time in years and I feel great but I can't continue to not eat so I need to decide what to do do about food.
I really hope someone here has been in this situation and can give me some feedback. And mods (and anyone else) I hope to get some honest opinions from you guys too.
