Thank you for posting your query.
I am glad to note that your migraines are better with treatment, and you are able to function almost normally.
Weight gain is a lesser problem than migraine. I would agree with your approach of trying to reduce the dose of zonisamide
in a gradual manner. This would ensure that there is no relapse of migraine while tapering the medication.
Other option is to use topiramate
for migraine prevention. It has a side effect of weight loss
, which could work in your favor!
I hope it helps.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
