Topamax is an anticonvulsant medication used to moderate and treat seizures in patients over the age of 10 years old who have been diagnosed with epilepsy. When the patient is under the age of 10, Topamax may be prescribed in combination with other medications. In addition to controlling seizures, Topamax may also be prescribed for the prevention of severe migraine headaches.
Topamax is produced and marketed by Ortho-McNeil Neurologics. Although approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the drug has been found to result in serious and unforeseen medical side effects. Some of the more serious effects include:
- Birth defects, specifically cleft lip and palates
- Facial and limb defects and other facial malformations
- Complete vision loss
