Hi, I was recently diagnosed with epilepsy. I was having these weird “episodes” which now my doctors are referring to as absence seizures, or aura’s. (They aren’t really sure what they are.) Then back in December I had a grand mal. We decided not to go on medicine because I was having a rathke’s cyst removed (type of brain tumor) We knew it was a long shot but we were hoping that could be causing the seizures . Then Two days before my surgery in February I had another grand mal. They put me on medicine while I was still at the hospital. Something I was not very happy about but am dealing with. Now it has been three months and I have been controlled on 100 mg of Topirimate. (Topamax) But,I have been really stressed about everything and have got most things figured out. However, there is one thing I am unclear of, I use to smoke marijuana kind of a lot. I did all the way up until February when they stuck me on medicine. Now, I have tried to talk to my doctor but she won’t answer my questions, she said she “doesn’t know” and what I have found on the internet isn’t consistent. Some things say you can, but others say no way. So my question is has anyone ever smoked marijuana on topamax/topiramate? What was your dosage and what was your experience? I just don’t want to do anything that is going to potentially hurt me or set me back, but I do want to go back to it. So please if you know anything let me know, thanks so much.
