    I am still using Topirimate, but have tried all the Biotin, Magnesium, that others suggest. What worked is Rogaine foam for women. My Hairstylist was stunned. It took a while to really see a difference so you have to use it reliably. In 4 months you will start to see a slight difference, by eight months you will be shocked.

    Buy the package that lasts 4 months. I know it is not inexpensive, but it will work and make you happy again. Follow the directions for 4 months. Some people do lose some more before it starts coming back. Just keep using it. See if you start to notice new growth after 4 months. Good Luck!

    I also have this problem and have only been off now one week. I lost 1/3 of my hair. I take biotin 10,000 and buy biotin shampoo. Take b vitamins, and a multivitamin, magnesium and vit c if u can. Topiramate depletes ur body of these.

    Hello , I surely know how you feel .

    When my hair came out you could literally see my scalp! It led me to deeper depression!

    I suggest a regime of vitamin D! The topiramate strips the vitamin D that our body needs. Try to research this..

    I wish you the best!
