Hi Karen,

I was on Topamax 50mg and birth control (ortho Tricyclen lo) for a month and a half. You should look into this more because both are hormonal medicines and you could get side effects like extra hair growth, acne, etc. If you have a dermatologist, ask them about these interactions. Both medicines are known to cause breakthrough bleeding(the pill)and irregular cycles(topamax) and in my experience both happened.

Honestly, I would drop the Topamax or any other med that interacts with birth control simply because they both have effects on periods. If there was something else you could take instead of Topamax that could be an option and you don't have to worry about menstrual side effects, cosmetic effects and birth control effectiveness in general.
