Increasing concerns about depression, suicidality, and other mood problems have been seen in people with epilepsy for many years. While recent information from the U.S. FDA suggests antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) as a possble cause, the links between the brain, epilepsy, AEDs and other treatments are complex and not well understood. Patricia Shafer, Resource Specialist on epilepsy.com will interview Dr. Andres Kanner, a well-known epileptologist and neuropsychiatrist about this topic.
