Hi,

Yes, they are perfectly safe together. I checked their interactions manually. Also, topiramate does not worsen myasthenia or has no significant impact on thyroid. Just one thing, topiramate can cause memory problems just as hypothyroidism can. Keep that in mind for the long term.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
