Topiramate Pharmacology

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.
