I recently had to change pain drs b/c mine closed his practice. I have been fighting w/my WC company to detox from the pain meds I take for the last 5 years b/c I'm having a lot of detrimental secondary side effects. The new doc's PA is having me come off of the Topiramate (1200 mg daily) to 400mg daily in one month. This seems a little crazy fast to me. When I requested to go slower, she accused me of being argumentative =/ Has anyone else had this kind of experience? I also am on Methadone 40 mg, down from 60 & Fentanyl patch, 50 mpg, down from 100.
Any feedback would be welcome!

Hello, Syd! How are you doing?

There is a risk of seizures, if you cut down on the Topiramate too fast, so you are right to want to be cautious.

Have you tried speaking to the doctor, rather than the PA?

Other withdrawal effects, may include nausea, dizziness, headache, pain, diarrhea and mood swings.
