In brief: Return to doctor
Headaches are very complex.
Make sure the diagnosis is actually correct. It is important to work closely with your doctor and provide feedback on the effectiveness of each treatment. At the same time, it is important to be patient as some medication takes a little time to start working. You are on a preventive medicine. Right now, you need an abortive medicine.

In brief: Need an abortive med
There are two categories of medications for migraines.
One is called abortive, which is used for immediate pain relief, and the other is called preventive, which is used to reduce the severity and frequency of migraines. Topamax (topiramate) is a preventive medication. If your migraine is not controlled with topamax, (topiramate) you need an abortive medication such as imitrex. You need to go see your doc.
