HI there,
just wanted to welcome you aboard. Life certainly seems to dish it doesn't it?
I do not take Topamax, however any med you take will have to be processed by your liver or kidneys. With the magority being via the liver. Do you have any issues with your liver that would make you so concerned? If not, there are some meds that are easier on the liver and kidneys than others. For me , i dont like to see anyone taking alot of tylenol on a regular basis. But your blood work , lilver enzymes and renal function testing should give you the answers to safe levels of drugs for you to take.
Once again welcome, I think you will find this to be a great place to be.
Mel
