Patient : I've recently been prescribed Topamax for migraine prevention. The only side effect I've experienced to date is taste perversion. I own a catering company and as such am required to participate in extensive daily food testing. Can you please explain to me why Topiramate or other carbonic anhydrase inhibitors cause taste perversion and if there is a way to counteract this side effect?
