Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
There are no significant side-effects of topamac. One possible side-effect reported is its effect on the liver. But then that can be monitored with yearly liver profile test.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
