Topamax (topiramate) & Aleve safe: I do not know of any interactions between Topamax (topiramate) and Aleve that would pose a problem. If you were my patient, I would recommend you take Aleve with Topamax (topiramate). The more important question is "Are you having side effects of Topamax (topiramate)?' Please check with the doctor who prescribed you Topamax (topiramate) and ask them about the Aleve as well.
