Re: Topamax-UPDATE W/LACTATION LEVEL
I was on topomax before becoming pregnant for my migraines and I lost a lot of weight (which was the good side effect) but it made me feel stupid. A side effect (because it is a drug that effects the brain) is that it makes you have a hard time with word choice. (strange, right?) And, I was a Customer Service manager at the time and had a heard time speaking to people!! I ended up going off of it because I didn't like that aspect.
As far as bf'ing, I'm not sure if you're supposed to take it while bf'ing. I seem to remember it saying definitely not to take while pregnant, and they didn't recommend taking while bf'ing. I would check out Kellymom.com - that site usually has a lot of good info about drugs and bf'ing.
