Topamax (topiramate) Tablets, Sprinkle Capsules July 2003
Audience: Neurologists, Pediatricians, and other Healthcare professionals
Ortho-McNeil and FDA revised the WARNINGS and PRECAUTIONS sections of the prescribing information to provide updated information about oligohidrosis (decreased sweating) and hyperthermia, which have been reported in topiramate-treated patients. Oligohidrosis and hyperthermia may have potentially serious sequelae, which may be preventable by prompt recognition of symptoms and appropriate treatment.
