Our expert says:
Sorry to hear of this most unfortunate range of experiences, karen. Temporal Lobe Epilspsy can indeed cause a variety of behavioural disturbances, though uually it can be controlled usefully by any one or a combination of, anti-epileptic drugs. It can take some agile balancing by the doctor and patient to find the drug that best suits him, and a dose that suppresses the epilepsy as far as possible, without excessive side-effects, including drowsiness. I hope he has been seeing a good local Neurologist, the right sort of specialist in this type of problem, to seek the right balance of medication.
