Hi Anne Marie,
I haven't used Topomax so I can't help you from experience, but here is a list of side effects that can be caused by it:

I have found that too often my doctors don't completely go over what to expect from or even how to take a drug they prescribe. I look up all of my meds online before starting them. Dr.'s can't remember everything about so many different drugs.

I hope you do better tonight.

Take care,
