History of hypersensitivity to topiramate or any anticonvulsant medication.

- Conditions upon screening which might contraindicate or require that caution be used

in the administration of topiramate, including: 1. Sitting systolic blood pressure below 90 mm Hg, or diastolic pressure below 50 mm Hg. 2. Heart rate less than 50 beats per minute after a 5-minute rest in a seated position.

- Inability to read and/or sign the consent form.

- Treatment with any other investigational drug during the 30 days prior to the initial

dosing for this study.
