Does anybody have depression symptoms from their epilepsy medication? I know some helps emotions, but some also affects them negatively. I'm on a few, and I'm not sure if it's one of them. I've spoken to my Dr. but apparently it's "just hormones".

      Agreed, I started with Keppra and it gave me bad mood swings. A family friend was on Keppra and she had "Keppra Rage." I now take Lamotrigine, and I think it gives me mood swings as well, definitely not as bad. Mostly anxiety, but anger issues do get aggressive, they never were a thing before, and depression. I don't know how much external factors play a role over the medications, but I was on Lamotrigine alive for a year, and I remember the 3 emotions surfacing during that time so🤷‍♀️

        @frog.0928 I've heard that Keppra really sucks for depression.
