As a counter-point to the comment that Topamax may be used to treat psychiatric conditions: maybe it can, maybe it cannot. If it can, and it's safe, there is no conceivable reason why the drug maker didn't get permission to use it that way, first.


Topamax DOES treat mental illness though. Just like seroquel DOES treat many of the various off-label illnesses for which its manufacturers were treated. I can understand the huge judgments if the drugs cause harm--but the companies are being forced to pay substantial sums of money when the drugs actually treat the illness.
