What Is The Highest Dosage Of Topamax One Can Take?

I HAVE BEEN ON TOPAMAX FOR ABOUT FIVE MTHS AND I HAVE BEEN HAVING MIGRAINES ABOUT THREE TIMES A WEEK . THEY HAD BEEN SLOWED DOWN TWO ABOUT ONE EVERY OTHER WEEK AND NOW THEY ARE BACK . SO CAN I ASK MY DR. TO UP MY TOMPAMAX? IF SO HOW MUCH? I TAKE 100MG A DAY NOW.

Answer

This is something you'll have to discuss with your doctor. For Migraine and headache prevention, the recommended dosage is up to 100 mg twice a day, for a total of 200 mg per day. Some doctors will prescribe more if it is working and they think a higher dosage will be helpful.
