Why are you taking Topamax ? Its usually used for Epilepsy, though it might be used for some situations in Bipolar Disorder.
Remember what are listed as side-effects are symptoms that MIGHT occur ; they;re not compulsory, and not, in this case, particularly likely. The particular combination you describe is uncommon, and I've seen no studies of the combined effects, but I shouldn't expect problems or depression. If you found that there seemed to be a growing depression, discuss it with your psychiatrist ( this combination is way beyond GP territory )
