Some common side effects of Topamax use are tiredness, drowsiness, dizziness, loss of coordination, tingling of the hands/feet, loss of appetite, bad taste in your mouth, diarrhea, weight loss, confusion, slowed thinking, trouble concentrating, nervousness, memory problems and speech problems. If any of these side effects get worse or last a long time, talk to your doctor.
Even though the likelihood is low, some patients do experience serious side effects while taking topiramate. These serious side effects include signs of kidney stones, fever, chills, painful or frequent urination, bloody or pink urine, rapid breathing, bone pain, broken bones, loss of consciousness, unusual bleeding depression, suicidal thoughts or other mood problems. Tell your doctor immediately if you begin to show any signs of these serious Topamax side effects.
Orlistat specifically may interact with your Topamax treatment. In addition, topiramate has the potential to decrease the effectiveness of certain types of hormonal birth control like pills, patches and rings. Talk to your doctor about other birth control options while you are taking Topamax. Be sure to mention any spotting or breakthrough bleeding you experience while on topiramate, as this may indicate your birth control is not working.
Tell your doctor if you are taking any of the following drugs or medications that have the potential to cause drowsiness: alcohol, cannabis, antihistamines, sleeping medications, anxiety medications, muscle relaxants and narcotic pain relievers.
