I have been in 50mgs of Topamax for 4 months. For the past 3 weeks, I have noticed an unusual amount of hair in the shower drain. I called my neurologist and was told it is a sure side effect of the medication and they are taking me completely off it after this week. They have assured me that once I stop taking it that the hair loss/breakage will stop. I have been looking all over and have been seeing mixed comments about hair regrowth after quitting Topamax. I am hoping because of the low dose and only being on it for 4 months that the neurologist is right and things should go back to normal fairly quickly.
Anyone have any experience with this? No horror stories, please. I am a mess.
