Abstract

The impact of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) on affective disorders was analyzed in women with epilepsy. One hundred and one reproductive-aged epileptic patients with depressive and emotionally labile disorders were examined. Thirty-two (31.7%) and 64 (63.4%) took one and two AEDs, respectively; 5 (4.9%) patients did not take. New-generation AEDs were shown to have a more favorable profile of psychotropic effects than traditional ones. The positive psychotropic effects of lamotrigine in treating epilepsy in women with affective disorders are described.
