See your neurologist: You should not change the dose of any medications before discussing with your physician. Keep a log of your headaches (frequency, timing, location, duration, severity) and take it with you to your neurologist. http://www.americanheadachesociety.org/assets/1/7/Topiramate_for_Migraine_Prevention_May_2012.pdf
