Valium has a nasty reputation from the 70s as "mother's little helper." Proper use of it has no more addiction potential than any other benzodiazepine, provided you don't have other genetic addiction problems like alcoholism or have abused medication. In fact, it has less problems with withdrawal from the drug because of its (at least) 24 hour half life.
Topomax has no chemical structure relation to Neurontin. Lyrica is somewhat related to Neurontin.
