On this episode of the Real Life Pharmacology Podcast, I cover topiramate pharmacology.
Topiramate is indicated for migraine prevention, seizures, and weight loss which are the most common uses that I see this medication used for.
Topiramate has carbonic anhydrase activity, so rarely, use of this drug may induce metabolic acidosis.
By far, the most common patient complaint I get with the use of topiramate is that it causes cognitive slowing or impairment.
I discuss important drug interactions on the podcast, be sure to check out my latest project which is a 200+ page book on managing drug interactions in primary care.
