Cosmetic surgery - do I stop the Topamax?
- Good for you for planning in advance.
- You should let your surgeon know all the medicines you are taking.
- You should not stop the Topamax except under the guidance of the prescribing doctor.
- Your surgeon should talk to the prescribing doctor to be sure the pain medicines you get after surgery are the right dose, given your Topamax.

Is Topamax safe to take with my surgery?
Thank you for your question. It very important that patients notify their surgeon of any medications or over the counter meds or supplements that they are taking prior to surgery. This should be brought up at the initial consultation to allow enough time to stop taking the product prior to the scheduled surgery.

Topamax During a Mommy Makeover
If a patient of mine needed to continue use of #Topamax to control #migraines, during a Mommy Makeover or any other procedure, I would be fine with it. However, your board-certified surgeon may feel differently depending on your procedure plan and medical #history. Therefore, its best to ask your surgeon this and about any additional medications you wish to include the day of your procedure.
Yes, I recommend discussing this medication with your surgeon. Your surgeon should have an up to date medical history including all medications and supplements you are currently taking, even if you only take them as needed. Sometimes your surgeon will discuss your medication usage with the physician who prescribed it, so make sure the office has a list of your doctors as well.
