The active component of Topamax is Topiramate, which is an anticonvulsant preparation. It is indicated for the treatment of epilepsy and prevention of seizures caused by epilepsy in young and adult patients. It works by altering the synthesis or action of neurotransmitters in the brain and thus suppressing the abnormal neural activity associated with seizures. Topamax also helps to prevent migraine episodes.

What is Topamax?
Topamax is indicated for the prevention of seizures associated with epilepsy. It can be used alone or as a part of combination therapy for certain types of seizures - primary generalized tonic-clonic ones, partial onset seizures and those characteristic of Lennox-Gastaut syndrome - in children over 2 years of age and in adult patients. It is mostly used in patients who are not responsive to other anti-epileptic medications. Topamax is also effective in the prevention of migraines in teenagers over 12 years of age and in adults.

How does Topamax work?
The active component of Topamax is an anticonvulsant called Topiramate. Its exact mechanism of action is not yet fully understood; however, some scientific studies suggest that it might affect certain neurotransmitters in the brain. Neurotransmitters or chemical messengers are produced by the nerves and are used to communicate with other nerves. Epileptic seizures happen due to abnormal activity of the brain nerves that spreads to other portions of the brain. By affecting the production and activity of these neurotransmitters, this medication blocks such abnormal activity or prevents it from spreading to other nerves.

How to take it?
It is recommended to start using Topamax with a low dose of 25-50 mg a day (taken in two separate doses) and increase the dose gradually by 25-50 mg per week until an effective one is found. For the prevention of migraine attacks, the dosage is as follows - 25 mg each night for the 1st week. The maximum daily dose is 100 mg.

Are there any contraindications?
You should never mix Topamax and alcohol since such combination causes dizziness and sleepiness. It is contraindicated in those who are allergic to Topiramate or other ingredients of the medication. The use of Topamax during pregnancy increases the risk for such birth defects as cleft palate and cleft lip.

What are the side effects of Topamax?
Like any other drug, this preparation can sometimes provoke certain unpleasant effects including the most common ones:
  • Paresthesia;

  • Tiredness;
