I was hoping to hear back from anyone taking TOPAMAX for muscle spasms or nerve pain. My doctor is suggesting it for my muscle spasms. Baclofen is not helping much anymore and valium has helped in the past is not now!

My muscle spasms are more like muscle contractions. Almost every evening one of my legs contract every 18 seconds. They tighten up and curl inward???

Please help me. If you are taking, how much and how often and what are your side effects and is it helping.

Thank you for your reply,

Hi Rob,
I have taken Zanaflex for several years for muscle spasm. I have MS and hubby has CIDP. My neurologist prescribes it more than Baclofen these days.
