Hi Prairieroad,

How is your daughter? Headaches can be a result of seizures.   A seizure happens when there is an excessive electrical activity in the brain. It can be localized or distributed/ generalized. The diagnosis of epilepsy or seizure is made based on the medical history, EEG or even MRI to discover the cause or what kind of seizure. It is very important also that your daughter take her medications regularly to prevent seizure from happening Avoid seizure triggers like lack of sleep, alcohol or infections. You can learn more about this through this link:  http://www.epilepsy.org.uk/info/triggers.html

The side effects of topamax include : ataxia, impaired concentration, dizziness, mood problems, diplopia, increased salivary flow. Less commonly, cognitive problems, apathy, aphasia, emotional lability, nystagmus, taste perversion.  Check this out on this link: http://www.mims.com/Page.aspx?menuid=mng&name=Topamax+tab&h=topamax

I hope this helps. Take care and regards.
