Since 1995 more than 4 million people worldwide have turned to Topamax to treat seizures, however in 2004 it was also approved for use in reducing migraines and is now considered the #1 migraine prevention medication.
Millions of patients worldwide have been treated with Topamax for a variety of medical conditions. Some other conditions often treated with Topamax include, but not limited to:
- Alcohol Dependency
- Weight Loss
- Eating Disorders
- Bipolar Disorder
Although the migraine drug has been tied to some side-effects, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning in 2011 regarding Topamax. Since then a label change was requested in order to better inform the public of complications linked to the drug; unfortunately hundreds had already been affected.
