I used to have Migrains it seems all the time. I would barely get over one and another would begin. Now that I take Topamax I have not had one in 2 years.

Hey i am 21 years old and i was on topamax when i was 17 and i am now remember all the side effects that i experienced .... some weight loss, clouded thinking, distast for soda, sleepyness, studdering, memory loss, and even some hair losst ... i was on it for about a year maybe 6months i cant remember ... but i know i stopped it b/c of an ex-boyfriend wanting me to get on birth control ... so i stopped taking it to make sure the pill was effective ... now i am experiencing terrible migranes again and i dont know what to do ... i know it helped my headaches but i get that sick feeling at the bottom of my stomach just thinking about how i felt like an idiot on it ... i dont know if i should go on it again ... im sad that the migranes are back ...

I've been taking Topamax for 5 yrs now for my migranes, I have experinced the same side effects and had to deal with them and still doing it to this day. Well now in the past few years my eye site is getting worse it took me til last year to say it was time I needed glasses and now it's one year later and my site hasn't gotten any better but to find my eyes got worse next step I have no clue. I'am still having migranes every day to no end and my doc has tried me on all meds he can think of. topamax isn't working for me but still take it cus I'm in fear of the withdrawls as long as I've been on it hurt no matter what

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#dfnf for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/9Me2E1 seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
