Topiramate is useful: Topiramate can prevent some headaches and it is an option for nerve pain (neuropathic) and it can be an appetite suppressant. But, like every thing else you are an individual and may need to be tried on few things before the right choice is found. If you get some response at 25mg twice a day your doctor may want to adjust the dose next time or switch meds. It may take a while to find the treatment.
