FAQs

Q. For how long do I need to take Toprisun?

The dose and duration of this medicine will depend on your doctor’s advice. Toprisun does not cure your condition (seizures/migraine) but prevents them from occurring. So, you may have to keep taking it for months or years depending on improvement in your symptoms and side effects that may occur.

Q. Is Toprisun good for anxiety?

Toprisun is not indicated for the treatment of anxiety. Please consult your doctor before taking the medicine

Q. Is Toprisun safe to take?

Yes, Toprisun is safe if taken as prescribed and advised by the doctor.

Q. What are the serious side effects of Toprisun?

Serious side effects of Toprisun are rare. These serious effects of Toprisun may include glaucoma (difficulty in seeing, eye pain and blurred vision), kidney stones (sharp pain in your sides or lower back) and metabolic acidosis (tiredness, loss of appetite, irregular and faint heartbeat). Other serious side effect of Toprisun could be suicidal thoughts and insufficient sweating (some children taking Toprisun may not sweat enough in hot weather, causing their body temperatures to rise).

Q. I am taking valproic acid for fits. Will Toprisun interfere with the working of valproic acid? Can this combination be taken?

Toprisun does not interfere with the working of valproic acid, but it increases the risk of getting increased levels of ammonia in blood (hyperammonemia). This can be dangerous. Excess levels of ammonia in blood may cause difficulty in thinking, remembering information, or solving problems. It may decrease your alertness and make you feel very sleepy with low energy. Tell your doctor immediately if you notice these symptoms. In rare cases, hyperammonemia may even occur because of Toprisun alone.

Q. Can Toprisun be used in children?

Yes, Toprisun is used for seizures in children more than 2 years of age. However, because of the lack of any reports, this medicine is not recommended to be used in children for migraine.
