ocean mentioned that to me in a pm, but i completely forgot about her message.
by the way, my doctor raised my topamax dosage to 50mg/day. that's good because it means that i can address my bipolar, migraines and ptsd all at once.
50mg is considered a moderate dosage and is known for having a mood stabilization effect for those who have bipolar, so now i'm technically on 3 mood stabilizers (depakote, risperidone -- an antipsychotic that also acts as a mood stabilizer -- and topamax).
if 50mg does not help reduce my migraines, my doctor will raise it to 100mg.
