How Do I Get Off Topamax?

How do I stop taking topamax? All at once or gradual? How??

Answer

Please note that it may well take more than two weeks to taper off Topamax. The usual taper is to decrease by 25 mg per week. So, a person taking a total of 200 mg per day would take EIGHT weeks to taper off Topamax.

Do NOT cut your tablets in half. Work with your doctor to taper off. He can prescribe 25 mg tablets to use during the taper.
