Topamax Side Effect / Hair Loss

Hey everybody! The holidays are almost over and I will be glad for life to get back to normal!  My question is that I have been on Topamax for almost a year and it has worked very well for me, however I have noticed that I am starting to have have a good deal of hair loss.  Has anyone else had this problem and is there any solution?  I also have researched a similar drug called Zonegran that apparently does not cause hair loss.  Any success or horror stories on this?
This is the closest that I have come to a normal life in a long time, but I really don't want to lose all of my hair.  Any help would be appreciated.
