Suggest confusion arises from fact that both Topamax and Zonegran could potentially cause kidney stones, but these are NOT comprised of uric acid.

In brief: No THEY DONT

No the seizure medicine does not cause gout or make it worse.
Only hydrochlorthiazide, Furosemide and Metolazone cause gout attacks.
