Loss Of Period While Taking Topamax

I have now been on Topamax for 2 months and have now missed 2 periods. Is this a normal side effect from the medication? I am on birth control pills & the Dr confirmed I am not pregnant but I am concerned of the lack of period but increase of PMS symptoms.

Answer

"Menstrual disorder" is a noted potential side effect of Topamax. The prescribing information also says to report it to your doctor if you notice menstrual changes while taking Topamax and birth control pills.

You should report this to your doctor.
