Topamac 50 MG Description

Topamac 50mg tablet is an anti-epileptic medicine. It contains topiramate as the active substance. It is used for the management of epilepsy/fits. Epilepsy is a brain disorder that causes a temporary

fault in the brain's electrical activity. This causes people to have seizures and convulsions. Topamac 50mg tablet is also used to prevent migraine headaches in adults. It works by stopping the abnormal excitation of brain cells in a part of the brain or the whole brain and, in turn, stops the generation of seizures. Take this medicine in the exact dose and duration as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take more than the recommended dose. Do not stop taking this medicine on your own. Before starting Topamac 50mg tablet, inform the doctor if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy or breastfeeding and about your detailed medical history.
