Can Topamax Cause A Person To Pass Out Or Have A Seizure?

Can Topamax cause a person to pass out or have a seizure? My daughter was started on Topamax for "classic migraines" and in the 3rd week lost consciousness twice.

Answer

Hi momuv4,

Have you spoken with your daughter's doctor about this? Has she ever lost consciousness before? As I was researching more about Topamax, a potential unwanted side effect of taking too much of this medication, may be seizures. Please contact your doctor in the morning.

Did she start on a low, and slow dose? We have information on starting topmamx very slowly (which is extremely important) HERE.

Good luck

Nancy
