It is so frustrating. I get these cravings that I can't satisfy no matter what I do. I still get cravings for chocolate, and I will eat a bit, see that it is terrible and spit it out. I still want it though. My mother is trying to lose weight and she says she would LOVE to have a drug with this side effect, as if once you take a bite of a chocolate bar that tastes bad, you no longer want the chocolate bar. It has stopped me from eating sweets, but I want them more than ever!
I really don't want to stop taking Topamax though. I went from two migraines a week to not having one in two and a half months. Amazing! Maybe I can learn to live without candy if it means having a normal life.
Does this side effect ever fade away after a while?
