Where do I donate prescription medication (Topamax/Topiramate)?

I have a good stock of Topamax that I brought from Sweden when I moved to the US, taking into account the time it will take for my local insurance to setup. But after a month, I was in ER for kidney stone which is a (rare) side effect of Topamax. As a result, the local neurologist asked me to discontinue Topamax right away. This medicine is rather expensive so instead of paying pharmacy to discard it, I prefer to donate.
I would like to know if there are any organizations where I could donate this medication to? Google didn't help much.
