can using metformin and topamax (topiramate) together for pre diabetes help with weight loss?

Metabolic acidosis: Both can cause metabolic acidosis which can be dangerous. Diet, exercise and metformin are safer. If a personal choice is made to use both topamax (topiramate) and metformin together, your doctor will monitor you and check your labs to make sure no harm is being done.
