Topamax/trokendi – any success w only 25 mg or 50mg?

  • By 1bi480g

    I notice that Trokendi XR comes in 25 mg, 50 mg, 100mg. I was on 100 mg and am currently on 50 mg as a weaning down process to avoid getting any stupider ;P. Has anyone had success with staying on a low dose of 25 or 50 mg and thus having the “best of both worlds” in terms of migraine prevention with less side effects? I would love to hear any success stories!

    Hi 1bi480g,

    Thank you for your question. I didn’t have long term success with Topamax, so really can’t help. I do hope others will be along shortly to lend their experiences with you.
