  FDA is warning about a possible increased risk of suicidal thoughts with antiseizure drugs or Chantix (varenicline).

  Antiseizure meds may be used for seizures, migraines, bipolar disorder, or other conditions...and include gabapentin (Neurontin), carbamazepine (Tegretol, others), Topamax (topiramate), etc.
