Dr. added Trokendi xr in addition to phentermine for weight

Dr. added Trokendi xr in addition to phentermine for weight loss. Stopped taking Trokendi because of severe side effects. After two months, many foods taste awful, especially those with dairy. I have also noticed my urine has a strange almost metallic smell. I know Trokendi can cause a change in the way foods taste, but will this go away?

I am a post liver transplant patient and have been on prograf (tacrolimus) for eight years. I have recently been prescirbed Trokendi XR for spinal fusion pain by a pain management doctor. I am concerned about interaction with my anti rejection medication. Should I raise this concern and request another medication from the pain management doctor? I am also experiencing a major episode of red and itching skin, since starting the medicine last Wednesday. Thank you for any advice you can give.

My previous neurologist prescribed Topiramate, but it was giving me confusion spells. I have since changed neurologists and my new neurologist s PA prescribed Trokendi XR. I have always been leery of XL, XR, etc. type medications. Do you know if it has as much of a track record of confusion spells as Topiramate? While I was on Topiramata I had a couple of trips to the emergency room. On another occasion, I had two confusion spells within a 30 day stretch. The first one on December 16, 2017, and the second one on January 4, 2018. Any thoughts?
