  1. Hi stephnz,

    Welcome to the Migraine.com discussion forum and thank you for sharing your journey with us.

    I am sorry to hear you've been in extended pain, I understand how frustrating and exhausting this is. It's difficult to receive a new diagnosis, but learning about our disease will enable us to get the proper treatment. We have plenty of information here, take your time and look around.

    Topiramate works wonders for many people with migraine disease. Here is information on this medication that may be useful; https://migraine.com/migraine-treatment/topamax/. This medication is most beneficial when taken in a split dose (AM and PM) and started at a low dose and increased slowly.

    Please keep us posted on how you are feeling,
    Nancy
