Does Topomax affect on Plan B ?

Hi, I took plan B right after inter course ... on Saturday before sunset...I take Topomax and it s one of the medications on Plan B. I didn t know whether it would reduce or increase pregnancy . I went to a pharmacist and she said it would increase pregnancy. Then she said unless my dosage was high on Topamax then I was safe. My dosage is 600 per day..... She said I was safe then. What is your opinion on this? I also want to know how long from sat may 7th can I take the blood test?

In 2000 I had a very bad reaction to taking all the drugs I had listed when adding Topamax to it. I literally floated out of my body and could see people behind me. This happened to me as I was driving as well and taking my daughter who was 14 to a friends house and sometimes I could see myself doing things but had no control over what I was doing. Needless to say I am no longer on these Meds cause I thought I was dying or was dead. Has anyone else had these kind of symptoms or side affects?

Hi does topomax cause hair loss (thinning hair)? I was on it five years ago for migraine and most of my hair but unknown to me, I also had stage 3 thyroid cancer. I was treated for my cancer and anemia and have my hair back:) Once again, the doctor wants me on topomax for treatment of severe migraines. Hence, my question- was it the thyroid cancer, or anemia that caused the hair loss(almost baldness) or was it Topomax? Thank you kindly!

Hi, I suffer from migraines and have been prescribed Topomax. Unfortunately I find that it makes my thinking very cloudy. I am only taking 20 mg though. What are my alternatives? I have considered reducing the levels until I can stop all together.

Dear Sir,

My mother has been suffering from Kidney disease. She never had any problem with BP or Blood Sugar but he has been declared to have bilateral renal parenchyma disease since 2005.

She is taking a calculated diet limiting the salt content in the food to 3 gm/day. The recent blood test conducted (2 months back) has reported bad results and the details are listed below:-

Creatinine - 7.5

Hemoglobin - 8.1

Blood Sugar (Fasting) 88 mg/DL

Urea - 150

Sodium - 131

Potassium - 4.2

What should be the next step? Is kidney transplantation the only choice? When/where should it be done? Is it getting very worse or we still have some time to go for the transplantation?

Please help.

Thanks, Kunal

Hello, about 13 days ago I drank alot of alcochol and I have been dizzy with a slight headache since then. I have been to the doctor he said it is probably liver intoxication, that it will go away, that was a week ago. I did a bunch of blood tests everything seems normal accept my hep B anti hps was 93. This happened about 2 months ago as well, the doc gave me, b6 dramin (portuguese), which I took for a week and the dizzyness went away. Any clue what it could be? Is this normal because of alcohol consumption? I have drank alot in the past years, never had this happen before.
