Hi all, saw neuro this morning. A good visit actually with a nice registrar. Told him how I ended up in hospital with heart arrythmia from taking Pregabalin (very rare side-effect so please don’t worry if you’re on it), anyway, he wants me to try Topiramate.
Bad news - it can cause ‘low mood’ (jeeeez I can do without that!)
Good news - people usually LOSE WEIGHT on it. Willing to give it a try… lol… honestly sideways in the mirror I look like a 58 year old woman in the final stages of pregnancy!
Anyone else on it? Particularly worried about the ‘low mood’ business.
Thanks, and hope you’re all doing ok.
