Sociopathy and Depakote
My son was diagnosed with JME at age 14. He's now almost 19...has been on Depakote ER currently 2000mg daily. He was tried on other meds in the past (keppra, topamax, neurontin) but depakote was the only one to control the seizures. Consequently, it seems he has developed a personality disorder...seemingly like sociopathy. He pathologically lies, steals, cheats, etc. and is often depressed and has outbursts of anger. Could this be related to the med?> Is there another med that may work as well to control seizures yet without these side effects on personality? I also read a study on "acquired sociopathy" often caused by frontal lobe damage...any ideas on this? Thanks..we are at a loss about what to do with him...
