What are some side effects of weaning yourself off topamax (topiramate)? I am experiencing withdrawl symptoms and don't know if this is normal?

Topamax (topiramate) Is a "dirty" drug (works on many receptors) and when weaning of you may experience many side effects: mood and personality changes, anxiety, muscle spasms, seizures, vomiting, headaches, just to name a few. A typical regime involves a minimal weekly drug dose reduction over 6-8 weeks. Whenever changing or weaning off your meds, you should always do it under your health care provider.
