Abstract Purpose While levetiracetam (LEV) usage is a known risk factor for psychosis in epilepsy, the modulating effect of certain patient and treatment characteristics on the risk of psychosis has yet to be fully elucidated. Methods In our tertiary epilepsy center, 84 patients with psychotic symptoms during LEV usage and 100 controls without psychotic symptoms during LEV usage were selected. Patient records were reviewed including demographics, medical history, antiepileptic drug use, and cogn...

Abstract Purpose Self-compassion has been associated with a set of adaptive coping strategies, which in turn explain better adjustment in individuals with chronic illnesses such as inflammatory bowel disease and arthritis. The aim of this study was to investigate whether self-compassion is associated with adjustment in people with epilepsy (PWE) and people with psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PWPNES). Adjustment was measured via coping efficacy, quality of life (QoL), anxiety, and depression....

Abstract Objective Biofeedback therapy using electrodermal activity (EDA) is a new noninvasive therapy for intractable epilepsy. However, the characteristics of EDA in patients with epilepsy are little known; therefore, we assessed the EDA characteristics in patients with epilepsy. Methods A cross-sectional observational study was conducted in 22 patients with epilepsy and 24 healthy individuals. We collected information on demographic characteristics, EDA, and state anxiety from both groups, an...

Abstract Introduction Focal drug-resistant epilepsy (DRE) has been associated with a significant burden of psychiatric comorbidity and low health-related quality of life (HRQoL). There is ample disagreement in previous studies as to which factors decisively influence HRQoL in this population. Here, we sought to assess the relationship between sociodemographic factors, epilepsy-related variables, and psychiatric comorbidity with HRQoL in a well-defined group of patients with focal DRE. Methods We...

Abstract Objective The study investigated overall adverse event (AE) burden and specifically psychiatric and behavioral side effects (PBAEs) in persons with epilepsy (PWE) on antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) monotherapy. It also assessed their correlation with neuroendocrine and oxidative stress biomarkers. Methods This cross-sectional observational study was conducted at a tertiary care hospital between 2016 and 2018. Persons with epilepsy above 18 years on monotherapy of levetiracetam (LEV) and conv...
