Topamax is a medication that is supposed to help people that have epilepsy seizures and is now being used for people who have migraines (that would be me- I have been on topamax now for a year and it has helped a lot)

 

here is some info on topamax for your reading pleasure Jeff - from topamax.com

 

TOPAMAX has been available worldwide since 1995. Since that time, more than 4 million patients have been treated with TOPAMAX (regardless of condition). Like many other migraine preventive medications, TOPAMAX was initially studied for another medical condition and was then approved in 2004 for use in reducing migraine frequency. Today, TOPAMAX is the #1 prescribed brand for migraine prevention in the U.S.

 

The studies of TOPAMAX are the largest, well-controlled clinical trials ever conducted for migraine prevention, involving over 1,700 adult patients.

 

How TOPAMAX Is Believed To Work-Although no one knows exactly why migraines happen, the process is believed to be a series of events in the brain that cause pain and the other symptoms of a migraine attack. For people with migraines, the brain is felt to be very sensitive to change and the nerves become overexcitable. There are many different triggers that may start the process of a migraine attack by increasing this excitability. The excitability in the brain may then activate pain-causing nerves to release chemicals around blood vessels that surround the brain. These chemicals cause inflammation and swelling of the blood vessels, which will cause head pain and throbbing. Specific areas in the brain may then become very sensitive to otherwise normal sensations causing sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, and tenderness of the scalp.

 

Unlike medication taken at the start of migraine pain to treat an attack, preventive medications like TOPAMAX are taken every day to help decrease the frequency of migraine attacks.

 

The exact way that TOPAMAX works is not known, but it is believed to help "calm" overexcitable nerves in the brain so they don't send out the signals that can cause migraines. Medical research has proven that taking TOPAMAX every day may help reduce the total number of migraine attacks that occur over time.

 

TOPAMAX is believed to help "calm" the process that leads to migraines. During a migraine, overexcitable nerve cells send pain signals. With TOPAMAX, it's believed that overexcitable nerve cells are "calmed" to help reduce migraine occurrence.

 

Have fun on the drive-It has been entertaining for us all. I especially love the photos of the places that you have visited especially Mt. Rushmore. I have always wanted to know there. Travel safely.

I want to add my thanks for sharing your trip with us. The pics have been great! Makes me want to do a road trip to someplace I haven't been. How have gas prices been?

 

Wishing you continued safe travels!

Most expensive has been NY at over $4.00 ($4.13 with our last fill up there)

MI was just over $4.00

Everywhere else has been under $4.00 so far

 

 

We didn't so much decide to move to Kodiak, AK as the USCG told us we were moving to Kodiak :lol

Y'all got out of here just in time. Gas prices bumped up over $4 in most places here the last few days. :(

 

The pics of Jet & Ryan smooshed together sleeping in the car are priceless! :wub:

Guess you didn't stop in Chicago - good thing. When I was there over Memorial Day, it was about $4.15. They said it was the most expensive gas in the continental US on the news.

Wyoming... pretty, but it is kind of like the land time forgot... we didn't see much other than hills and then about 134842932342369434 pounds of coal

I really like Wyoming, but it's technically not even a state. It doesn't have the 500,000 population required that territories were required to have to become states.

 

You see a lot of exits off the highway that say ranch rd 23, 24, 25...

WOW just WOW awesome trip. Thank you for sharing it with us ~ and please look for a few hundred more Wal-Mart trucks if you could.

 

Hmmm anyone have a CB that can send a hundred or so Wal-Mart trucks to the northwest region?? :lol:lol

10 June travels, 255 miles, and 1 lousy Wal-Mart Truck

 

Total of 80 Wal-Mart Trailers so far.

 

Nothing written down to look up today.

 

Make sure the cheapest gas is not 10% ethanol!

 

The few cents saved is overcome by the big loss in MPG.

If you see 'Unleaded Plus' the plus is 10% ethanol, and that was a more than 13% loss in MPG.

I am amazed at how few Wally World trailers during your excursion! Just for giggles I counted on my way to work (a 47 mile one way trip utilizing I95 and US Rt. 1 to Newport, RI from N. Stonington, CT) and I counted 7 just on that leg alone! I thought for sure you would see well over 300. Crazy!

 

Thanks for taking GT along, fascinating journey. Glad the dogs are doing well.

 

Continued safe journey to you and yours.

I've also noticed the decreased gas mileage that comes with ethanol. It's not worth the reduced price per gallon, nor the increased price of all food products containing corn, in my opinion.

I counted 15 on my way to and back from Indy Sunday. I probably missed some on 465 cuz it's hard to see all six lanes...

I thought sure I'd guessed low on Wal-Marts but now it's looking like I guessed way high. So much for my rep as a forecaster! :lol :lol :lol

 

Maybe you could look up why there ISN'T much of anything in Wyoming?

 

Hope you continue to have a safe trip -- I'm enjoying the pics.

I don't know about you guys, but we are having fun reading about your trip! I love the pictures of Mt. Rushmore at night. So cool! You can keep spotting those Wal Mart trucks for a while longer. Just stop at 251. :) Keep having a safe trip.
