James that used to happen to me ALL the time, every day , bending down to pick something up, stroking a small dog, bending down to say hello to a little person etc until topiramate. Now it doesn’t happen I am delighted to say. Yesterday I groomed Star bending over, bending on haunches to give her a massage, kneeling to massage stuff into her feet, all things that prior to topiramate would have caused extreme dizziness and nausea for hours, went without incident. One happy relaxed dog and person. So maybe the neuron calming meds really do help the brain settle and act in tandem with the antidepressants in small doses? I can only speak for myself, but I was so restricted in my movements before and now I don’t even think about it. I am slightly dizzy this morning because I have been running around like a blue fly cleaning my flat because I have an unexpected guest coming but nothing as bad as before.
