Topamax® is a medication that is prescribed for the treatment of epilepsy and the prevention of migraine headaches. Although it is not known exactly how the medication works, it is believed to slow down electrical signals (to help with seizures) and calm nerve cells in the brain (to prevent migraines).
Topamax, which is generally taken twice a day, is available in two forms: tablets and "sprinkle" capsules. Possible side effects include fatigue, nervousness, drowsiness, and weight loss. This medication is not suitable for everyone. For example, people with glaucoma, kidney disease, or certain allergies may not be able to take the drug.
