Look up the side effects of your drug, that's probably where it should make sence. Otherwise it should not be related.

I think so. I'm not a doctor, but I know first hand it causes depression. Epilepsy is hard to deal with, and it's harder to accept when its new to your life. Seizures affect so many different parts of the brain that there's no way your entire being isn't affected at some point in time.

The best thing to do is ask your Dr. and what he/she says about that
