Obtain baseline and periodic serum bicarbonate during therapy; consider reducing dose or discontinuing if acidosis occurs. Monitor closely for oligohydrosis and hyperthermia (esp. children). Suicidal tendencies (monitor). Inborn errors of metabolism, reduced hepatic mitochondrial activity: increased risk of hyperammonemia; measure ammonia levels if encephalopathic symptoms occur. Maintain adequate hydration; avoid ketogenic diets. Renal impairment; obtain CrCl prior to initiation. Avoid abrupt cessation. Females of reproductive potential should use effective contraception during therapy. Labor & delivery. Pregnancy: risk of fetal toxicity; consider alternatives. Nursing mothers.

Interactions:

See Contraindications. Increased severity of metabolic acidosis and risk of kidney stone formation with concomitant other carbonic anhydrase inhibitors (eg, zonisamide, acetazolamide, dichlorphenamide); monitor. Phenytoin, carbamazepine reduce topiramate levels; may need to adjust dose. May increase amitriptyline, phenytoin levels. May antagonize oral contraceptives, valproic acid. May be potentiated by HCTZ. CNS depression potentiated with alcohol, other CNS depressants; avoid. Hyperammonemia (w/ and w/o encephalopathy) and/or hypothermia possible with valproic acid. Monitor glucose with pioglitazone. Caution with other drugs that interfere with temperature regulation (eg, anticholinergics, carbonic anhydrase inhibitors). Monitor lithium levels with high-dose topiramate. May be antagonized by valproic acid, lamotrigine.
