This research paper discusses how "Antiepileptic pharmacotherapy can very well have positive effects on cognition and behavior 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 behavioral problems or aggravating preexistent neuropsychological impairments."
