Topiramate is a prescription medication used to treat various conditions related to the nervous system. Specific topiramate uses include:
* Epilepsy treatment (either used alone or in combination with other epilepsy medication)
* Migraine prevention.
Gabapentin is a prescription medication used to treat the following conditions:
* Epilepsy -- Gabapentin is approved to be used along with other seizure medications to treat partial seizures in adults and children as young as three years old.
* Shingles nerve pain -- This medication is also approved to treat the chronic nerve pain that often occurs after an outbreak of shingles (known medically as postherpetic neuralgia).
Both meds are different, however for more info do talk to a pharmacist, please.
Take care, best wishes!
