A 35-year-old female asked:
Is it possible to experience withdrawal from topamax (topiramate) and ativan a year and a half later? i took both for 5 years.

No.: If you have taken neither medicine for a year and a half, then your symptoms, whatever they are, may be quite distressing, but they cannot be attributed to withdrawal from either medicine. I suggest you contact your prescribing doctor, to consider treatment for you symptoms, if they are distressing.
