    Re: Topiramate advice

    I don't have personal experience with this medication, but quoting from "Overcoming Alcohol abuse - a 28 Day Guide" by Dr Conor Farren.

    "Topiramate is built up to a 300mg per day dose. It is effective at reducing cravings for alcohol and it decreases obsessive thoughts about alcohol."

    Based on this, the 25mg, if it's a daily dose, sounds too low.

    It's interesting to know how effective Topiramate is with alcohol addiction. I hear there's a debate about its effectiveness, what do you think?
