Topamax (topiramate), a drug shown to cause weight loss, is safe and effective for the prevention of migraines according to a paper by Stephen Silberstein, neurologist at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.
“Results from these trials indicated that topiramate (100 mg/day) has proven safety and efficacy in migraine prevention,” concludes Silberstein.
“... topiramate has demonstrated safety and represents an effective option in the prevention of migraine, as supported by extensive clinical research.”
