Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi. My name is***** have over two decades of experience, and I'm online and available to help you today. We can also chat by hone and skype.
I'm sorry to hear about all you are going through.
Topiramate has not been well studied for use in benzodiazepine dependence or "benzo brain damage".
Also it would not be considered the medication of first choice for issues concerning cognition defects and drowsiness.
So. What is the take home message?
I would not recommend using topiramate in the situation you have outlined in your post.
Does this make sense to you?
Dr. Rick MD FACS
I hope you feel better soon.
I suggest you discuss this in person with your neurologist as there is no black and white answer here.....
