Mood And Behavioral Changes When Living With Epilepsy

Posted on October 03, 2017

Some commonly overlooked symptoms related to epilepsy include changes in mood and behavior. You or your loved ones may have experienced struggling with feeling easily irritated, timid or aggressive. Or other symptoms like depression, anxiety, as well as changes in behavior. These can occur in both adults and children, and can be particularly difficult in children and adolescents who are concurrently experiencing normal development changes.

MyEpilepsyTeam has found some helpful information from the Epilepsy Foundation Northwest that we wanted to share with our members about how to manage mood or behavior changes resulting from epilepsy.
