Hi lori, I am not quite sure of your question so I am giving you the links to read about each of these drugs. I believe it would be best for your doctor to make this decision..

I agree Mary, plus these drugs do two different things, you can't compare their actions with your problem.

I have the same condition and everything I have seen said Diamox is the only treatment, and of course weight loss too. Topomax is used for migraines which could also be a problem with intercraneal hipertention. Some Doctors will combine both of them. Ask your Doctor, your neurologist should make that decition.

Yes, & topomax is a seizure drug, & make sure your kidney function is up to par. It can cause problems in this area also... Mary
