Topamax made me feel like someone literally shot me in the back of the head, they made my migraines worse however that’s not the case for everyone. Some people have great experiences with it…

Topamax has literally saved my life headache/migraine wise. I used to get them daily.

Keep in mind phentermine is essentially legal speed. You can develop long term heart problems or anxiety problems. Topamax will help with the migraines but it may cause some stomach upset and I had some issues with GI bleeds after starting it. If weight loss is most important than the phentermine will do the trick. If the migraine issue is more important the Topamax will work nicely as well. Personally I preferred the phentermine as my weight caused my migraines.

Topamax can cause short term memory loss.
