MECHANISM OF ACTION

Topiramate blocks the action potentials elicited repetitively by a sustained depolarization of the neurons in a time dependent manner. Topiramate also augments the activity of the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyrate (GABA) at some subtypes of the GABAA receptor (controls an integral chloride channel), indicating a possible mechanism through potentiation of the activity of GABA.
