Allergic to Topamax??

Started taking topamax about a month ago to help with terrible migraines. It's helped wonderfully. However, the back of my throat has been itching terribly. No strep, or mono. Back of my throat is swollen & bumpy. ER & famy doctor don't have an answer for me as to what's causing it. My sister who is an RN suggested I may be having an allergic reaction to a new medication- topamax is the only one. Any thoughts ????

Hi there,

Just finished reading your comments. I think your sister is correct.
Based on your comments, I think you may be experiencing a side effect
of Topomax (topamax).  May I suggest that you go to this website : www.drugs.com.
There you can type in the word Topomax (topamax) where it says SEARCH.
This will bring you to a lot of information about this drug that you are taking called Topomax (topamax). Included there will be a section called Topomax (topamax) side effects . There's a long list of side effects of this drug. After this list is finished you will see these words : SIDE EFFECTS(  IN MORE DETAIL)
You will probably want to click on this. This will bring you to an even larger list of side effects of Topomax (topamax). I think you will find this helpful. I wish you well in your search for some answers to what is going on.  Be well.  Eve
