I have been on Topamax for 8 years for Migraine's.  I don't seem to have them anymore.  Is it safe to go off of this?

Hi, mamame,

Good question! Unfortunately, there really isn't a good answer. You could certainly ask your doctor to help you taper off the Topamax to see if you still need it. The potential problem with this is that if you go off it, then discover you do still need it, it might not work again. There's just no way to know other than trying.

Good luck,
