Abstract: We read with interest Drs Darke and Farrell’s commentary on our meta-analysis of Topiramate published in the eight issue of 2016. To elaborate on some of the ideas raised by the commentary, we focus our response on the question of why some studies implied a benefit and others did not. Overall, although the current evidence is not strong enough to support the routine clinical use of Topiramate for the treatment of cocaine use disorder, it may be useful for researching in certain circumstances in terms of helping people with cocaine use disorders stay abstinent from cocaine use.
