Impossible to say: You seem to be prone to severe allergic reactions to medications. People who have had a severe skin reaction with an antiepileptic drug (Lamictal) were shown to have a higher risk of a skin problems with other antiepileptic drugs (Topamax). You need to determine if the risk is worth the potential benefit of this drug Here is a link to the article https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17502552
