You’ d hit it on the head yourself
You do need to do the research yourself beforehand. This is wrong. We shouldn’t have to do this. But we must. The ‘experts’ should know and forewarned is forearmed. I’ve read Topamax is hard to tolerate and evil. I don’t know about it keeping you in bed but I thought its cognitive effects were well documented. Maybe the neurologist thought she was being ‘kind’ - dickhead indeed. Don’t forget to let her know. I would,
Good Luck finding something more useful to you.
