If I've had an allergic reaction to a sulfa-drug for antibacterial uses some years ago, would I likely be allergic to Topamax? I've read that there is a difference in how the two types of drugs are constructed.

Re: Topamax

Sulfa drugs are antibiotics. Topomax is a diet drug. I can't see that they bear nay resemblance to each other. You could check and see if the literature says not to take if allergic to sulfa drugs.

Re: Topamax

If you have an allergy to Sulfa, DO NOT TAKE TOPAMAX unless you are very closely monitored, which you likely will not be. Topamax IS... repeat, IS a sulfa-related drug. It is a sulfamate substituted monosaccharide that many people allergic to Sulfa will have an adverse reaction to. Please see the following link and do your own research: [url][/url]
