Laura Saunders: For me, TOPAMAX has been really great because I've had far fewer headaches than I ever had before. Sara Clow: She was strong enough to convince me: "You've got to give it a try, Sara. Dr. Susan Hutchinson: Sara has some concerns about taking TOPAMAX, because she was concerned about memory loss. So I was able to reassure her that we would start at a low dose, increase slowly, and we would monitor very carefully for any kind of side effects like that, and now it's working. Judy Williams: All of a sudden, I noticed I'm not getting a migraine everyday. Female Speaker: One day I noticed, okay, I didn't have a headache today. Then the next day or the next two days, I was like, okay, I didn't have headache today either. Dr. Jan Brandes: She's having far fewer attacks. She still does have some, but she is able to treat them easily. Female Speaker: That was something I hadn't tried, so I figured I should give it a try. I had nothing to lose at that point. Female Speaker: I felt like I was coming at life again as a person. Female Speaker: I was able to turn the music up with my daughter and jam our country tunes. Female Speaker: I'm baking more cakes because I feel better. I can be spontaneous. We can go on trips and it's great. It's very liberating. Female Speaker: Not anticipating the headaches, is an incredible relief. TOPAMAX changed a lot of my life. Female Speaker: Migraines plays such a minimal role in my life today. I don't think about them anymore.
