The effect of perampanel on aggression and depression in patients with epilepsy: A short-term prospective study

There is a large variety of factors associated with psychiatric symptoms in PWE. For effective treatment, it is important to first disentangle the amalgamated complex and focus attention on more potent determinants, while some antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) must be considered as causative factors.
