I understand that you recently had an EEG, MRI and are experiencing tinnitus. I also assume that you are taking Zoloft, Zyprexa and Depakote and are wondering if these medications may affect EEG readings. Depakote is an anti-seizure medication that suppresses certain types of seizure activity. There is no reported characteristic EEG findings with Depakote. Zoloft a medication for depression and anxiety also has no specific EEG changes associated with it. Zyprexa, an anti-psychotic agent may provoke seizure activity in 0.9% of patients taking the medication as per premarketing studies. However, there may have been confounding factors contributing to seizure activity.
EEGs are always interpreted by a physician in the context of the patient's symptoms, medical history, and medications. An abnormal EEG finding is not necessarily indicative of disease. Please discuss these issues further with your physician.
