Thank you for contacting Healthcare Magic.
You have both migraine
. Therefore, topamax (topiramate
) is a good choice for you, as it is effective against both the conditions. Topamax is a fairly safe medication and the common side effects are tingling and numbness of feet & legs and weight loss
. Numbness of head is usually not due to topamax. It is either due to after effect of seizure (post-ictal state) or a minor seizure.
Wishing you good health,
