Our expert says:
The neurologist sounds as though he was being very very cautious. IF there were absolutely no signs of acftual physical epilepsy or any potential physical causes of that, and only one single episode with goof reason to believe it to have been a psychogenic fit related to panic ( especially if you have had any other, different, episodes of panic ) then I would not havwe started you on a medication like topamax. Unless maybe you're an airline pilot !
I cant make any firm recommendations about medication for someone I haven't seen, but as you have stopped the topamax and feel fine and have had no further episode, it's probably safe to remain off it now.
