I take topamax (topiramate) for migraine prevention, I was told I can't take OTC meds [tylenol etc] for pain whiletaking the topamax (topiramate). Why is that? Thank you.

In brief: Medication overuse
If you on a prophylactic med you may be having frequent headaches.
Frequent use of otcs can lead to tolerance of medications and rebound or chronic daily headaches.

In brief: Its a caution
You could take the two together however, it may have an effect whereby the topamax (topiramate) acts a lot stronger and causes CNS depression.
Brain activity is slowed and takes effect on breathing and heart.
