Is It The Topomax?

Posted by LibraryLady , 28 March 2012 · 307 views

I am feeling pretty weird this morning! The only thing different is that I took a Topomax this morning per the instructions of my new PDr. I'm supposed to take one in the morning and one at night. It is to help me with my binge eating. Boy oh boy! When I got in the car this morning and started driving I felt like I was Alice who'd just taken a bite of the cake to make herself grow big, or is it small? Anyway, my depth perception was totally messed up! I was driving in the dark too. Yikes! I definately felt like I was driving impaired. So, I drove as carefully as I could, since part of my drive to work is on the highway.

I feel pretty strange. I hope I will get used to this new medication. One good thing is I don't have a headache! The original use for Topomax is as a headache med, and it's working for me in that respect. I usually always have a headache, so it's really nice to not have one! It's secondary use is to help with binge eating. I only started taking it last night, so we'll have to wait and see if it helps with the ED.

I had to work late last night and teach a late library use class. I didn't get home til 8:00 p.m., so I ate a late dinner. I didn't binge because I was still so full from eating late. I went out on my porch and potted up some succulents that I had been wanting to group together in a nice big pan that I had bought for that purpose. Succulents should be potted in low flat pots that are not very deep. I think the grouping I did looks pretty nice, and once they grow some they will fill in the pan and look good.

I slept well, and then took that topomax with my other meds this morning. Weeeeirrrrd! :-)
