I am taking topomax for a rare neuro disease pseudotumor cerebri. I am courrently taking two hundrend mm a day. Since I started it (two months ago) I have constant sinus congestion adn pressureI am wondering if anyone else has had this side effect. Sopmetimes my sinuses are so swollen that my eyes barely look open.

i have been taking topomax for quitea few years now
at one point my doctor tried taking me of it. that didn't work
but i do take less of it now. I never had any problems with it
but i supose each person is different and is going to react to things
differently. maybe ask your doctor what you should do.

Thanks for replying. At my second visit I asked my doctor about it. He thought that it was an early onset of a bad allergy season. I found a support group for people who have my condition and many of them have sinus congestion and pressure when their syumptoms are bad. B"H I am doing very well and the doctor hopes to be able to take me off of the Topomax in a few months.

May you have a Refuah Shleinah Bmheirah.
