Topamax

Just wondering, is Topamax used for nerve pain? I am currently on Neurotin, and it helped in the beginning, but does not work anymore, unless I totally up the dose, and I do not know if I am supposed to. That would mean that I would have to take over 1800mg a day, but I have and it has made my leg pain go away, but I do not know if that is safe. Can someone enlighten me? I was wondering how I can get my doctor to prescribe me Topamax. I had a spinal fusion a year and a half ago, now I believe I have another disc gone bad, because the pain that shoots down my leg is so bad. This has accerelated fast, and I believe I will have drop foot soon.
