See below a downloadable pdf research resource discussing How we can overcome neuropsychological adverse effects of anti-epileptic drugs.
This research paper explores how "Antiepileptic pharmacotherapy can very well have positive effects on cognition and behaviour via control of seizures and interictal epileptic discharges, and/or via improvements of mood and psychiatric comorbidity. However, more frequent, and less appreciated are adverse effects of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), causing new cognitive or behavioural problems or aggravating pre-existent neuropsychological impairments."
