Hello, I agree with the other posts that topamax isn't likely the cause.  You might want to see about getting your doctor to check a Thyroid level, a Fasting Blood Sugar, and an A1C, on you because Hypothyroidism, or Diabetes very well could be the culprit.  I Hope This Helps! Good Luck and God Bless Brenda
