Maso is a pharmacist or a pharmacology professor I
think... anyway ... topiramate, aka... Topamax is an anti-epileptic, and a migraine prophylaxis. Also it is used in psychiatry for a mood stabilizer... I tried it and was really allergic to it. Also, topiramate is a relativey old medication and there are many more newer drugs now in use.
Just my personal experience with this particular med.
