Q. For how long do I need to take Topirate?
The dose and duration of this medicine will depend on your doctor’s advice. Topirate does not cure your condition (seizures/migraine) but prevents them from occurring. So, you may have to keep taking it for months or years depending on improvement in your symptoms and side effects that may occur.medicineDetail.readMore
Q. I am taking valproic acid for fits. Will Topirate interfere with the working of valproic acid? Can this combination be taken?
Topirate does not interfere with the working of valproic acid, but it increases the risk of getting excess levels of ammonia in blood (hyperammonemia). Increased levels of ammonia in blood can be dangerous and may cause difficulty in thinking, remembering information or solving problems. It may also decrease your alertness and make you feel very sleepy with low energy. Immediately inform your doctor if you notice these symptoms. It is important to know that, in rare cases, Topirate alone can cause hyperammonemia.medicineDetail.readMore
