Has anyone had experience with the above title. Specifically for chronic headaches.

Lyrica helps some. Higher doses work but weight gain is a big issue. Ive used topamax in the past by itself. It worked ok until i hit 100mg than side effects were too much. Plus topamax doesnt have side effects of weight gain, if any people lose weight.

Im thinking of asking my dr about starting off adding a low dose of topamax 25mg nightly to my lyrica 150mg.

Ive tried added tricyclics and snri and nri but side effects out weigh any benefit which is little.
