Hi Dr. Price,

I wanted to share with you an update from a question that I asked you about 4 months ago. I asked you can Topomax cause people to have symptoms of Bipolar 2. You said it is possible.

Great news. After you answered me, I called up my wife's neurologist who put her on it for migraines. He also agreed that the topomax can be causing her to make poor judgment etc. He took her off it and she doing better then ever bh. She is taking vitamins and natural stuff to help her with migraines. She is back to herself emotionally.

I just want to also let people know this, so they will be more aware of side effects of medication they might be on. My wife's mother has bipolar and everyone said my wife must be developing it now and we should go see a psychiatrist. I stuck to my gun and said I know she dosnt need one etc. BH I was able to figure out it was the topomax and get her off it, instead of bringing her to a psychiatrist to give her more meds.

Thanks again for your help
