Topamax Sprinkle is indicated for the following purposes:

  1. Treatment of seizures: Topamax Sprinkle is used as initial monotherapy for the treatment of partial-onset or primary generalized tonic-clonic seizures in patients 2 years of age and older.
  2. Prevention of migraine headaches: Topamax Sprinkle is also used to prevent migraine headaches in adults and teenagers who are at least 12 years old. It can help reduce the number of migraine attacks but will not treat a headache that has already begun.


  • Before starting Topamax Sprinkle, read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist. If available, also review the Patient Information Leaflet. If you have any questions, ask your healthcare provider.
  • Take Topamax Sprinkle by mouth with or without food as directed by your healthcare provider. Usually, it is taken twice daily.
  • Topamax Sprinkle capsule can be swallowed whole or opened to sprinkle the contents on a teaspoonful of soft food, such as applesauce or yogurt. If you choose to sprinkle the contents, swallow the drug/food mixture right away without chewing.
  • After swallowing the mixture, drink some liquid to ensure all of the drug is swallowed.
  • The dosage of Topamax Sprinkle is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. For children, the dosage may also be based on weight. Your healthcare provider will gradually increase your dose to reduce the risk of side effects. In some cases, treatment may start with a once-daily dose at bedtime, which is then slowly increased to twice a day. It may take several weeks or months to reach the optimal dose for you and to experience the full benefits of the medication.
  • Take Topamax Sprinkle regularly at the same times each day to get the most benefit from it. This can help you remember to take it. 
  • To prevent kidney stones from forming, drink plenty of liquids while taking Topamax Sprinkle, unless your healthcare provider advises otherwise.
  • If your condition persists or worsens while taking Topamax Sprinkle, inform your healthcare provider. 


  • Do not prepare the mixture in advance for later use. 
  • Do not stop taking the medication without consulting your healthcare provider, as some conditions may worsen if the drug is suddenly stopped. If your doctor determines that you need to discontinue the medication, they will likely gradually decrease your dose.
