In reply to Topmax for Migraines, posted by Sprgrvr on June 23, 2003, at 17:02:37

I found this news article a friend had sent to me last fall about Topamax.

"Topiramate reduced the number of migraine episodes by half in more than 50% of patients taking 100mg/day, according to Dr. Stephen Silberstein, director of the Jefferson Headache Center at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia.

The 469 migraine patients in the trial received topiramate at 50mg, 100mg or 200mg daily or placebo for 26 weeks. Those taking the 100mg and 200mg doses had the greatest response, and the 100mg dose was determined to be optimal in terms of efficacy and tolerability.

Specifically, with the 100mg dose, migraine frequency was reduced from an average of 5.4 to 3.3 episodes per month."
