Topiramate can cause hair loss in 1-2 % of users. Typically, if topiramate is to be implicated, the hair loss should start 2-4 months after starting the drug. I always advise individuals seek the advice of a dermatologist if they suspect a drug could be involved in their hair loss. Other causes could be present in addition to or instead of a drug induced cause.
