125 mg oral Pharms - Topiramate
  T+ 3:00 200 mg oral Pharms - Topiramate


I took 125mg topiramate at 10am and it didnít really hit me other than a slight buzz and some dizziness so around 1pm I took another 200mg topiramate more and boy did it take a long time to kick in. The buzz was building up so I knew it would come eventually. I let myself relax and watch funny youtube videos for a few hours and felt myself melt into that silly giggly mood and felt pretty nice.

The downside is that the second I stood up from my peaceful rest my head hurt like hell and burned and any movement made my head hurt worse and being upright at any point in the day went exactly the same way with that horrible burning headache. It came with the worst ringing in my ears as well, and I already have tinnitus. Laying down for most of the day was ok but the ringing continued and I felt very irritable instead of calm for the second half of the day, and for some reason even though I felt incredibly sleepy, I also felt completely unable to sleep as though I was hyper but I wasnít. Definitely a weird and unproductive day and I was so uncoordinated and dizzy; unable to speak or think quickly the whole day.

I should also mention larger doses of topiramate cause severe dehydration and always make me have to pee a lot! Definitely my least favorite part since this means I have to get up to walk to the bathroom and the kitchen a lot and walking is extremely difficult in this state...
