I just recently started taking this for treating 6 to 8 migraines a month. I was using the max amount of meds every month for migraines and in constant pain and usually going in around every 3 to 4 months for a shot. If this sounds familiar you may want to try this drug. If was prescribed 25 mg. for a week which I have just made it though and now am on my second week of 50 mg. My biggest side effect is being tired. I am taking both pills at night instead of one in the morning and one at night. I am hoping to only have to take 50 mg, but we will see. So far so good, but I will up date on progress.

I am addicted to Restyl since many years. I take 2 pills of 0.5mg every night. I also take Topamac 50 for migraine since last 4 months. Now since the last 7 days I decided to gradually reduce my dose of restyl to 1.5 pills ie 0.75mg along with Topamac 50. With this I cant sleep well and my head pains throughout the day and my I get very angry and agitated. Plz help

Hi guys, I was a 5 year user of Topamax and loved it until the side effects kicked in 5 years down the track!!!! I was taking 2 x 50mg daily and strated to get tremors and a 24 hour a day eye twitch. As soon as I came off Topamax, the symptoms disappeared. I am currently on Candesartan, but it is a bit soon to know how effective it is. I'll keep you posted.

Can anyone post back with their current status?

Candesartan is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure, and to improve heart function. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, increased urination, low heart rate, and hypotension.

Is there anything else I can help with?
