LKA,

I've had some problems with hair loss due to Topamax, but it seems to be leveling off and I'm not sure why. I take quite a few suppliments specificly to counteract the hair loss, and I think this helps. There is a Topamax board if you are interested with a posting about vitamins & suppliments recommended to prevent hair loss:

http://pub123.ezboard.com/btopamaxtalk

This is a quote from that posting,

"2000 mcg of Biotin, 100 mg of Zinc, 500 mg of Magnesium, and 200 mcg of selenium. I also use the Nioxin hair products religiously."

In addition to the above I add a multi vit, a B-complex, 1mg of folic acid, vit E and primrose oil.

No one can say for sure if they work, I'll do anything to keep my hair, and I seem to be accomplishing that. :)

Diane
