... while on it. But I am not sure if it is what is causing my constipation? I have recently swtiched birth control pills twice, so I am unsure if this is the cause or the topamax
22 Jul 2010
I also take Topamax (since Feb. 2010). I have not had a problem with constipation since I have been on this medication. The neurologist who prescribed mine did not mention constipation as one of the side effects when she was going over the medication with me. Perhaps it could be the birth control pills. I know that when I changed birth control pills, I suffered from acute constipation until my body got used to the new pill. I hope this helps.
