?: Can't really understand your question/point,if you mean topamax (topiramate) would affect your glaucoma, unlikely and depends on the type of glaucoma,please ask your ophthalmologist as glaucoma is a serious disease, if you are asking whether topamax (topiramate) would interact with antihistamines, yes it would,and not advisable together,2nd generation antihistamines as loratadine or cetirizine won't affect glaucoma though ...Read more

If the head ct is negative, follow up with your physician to get stronger migraine medication and maybe a migraine controller medication. ...Read more
