How does the use of medications to treat psychoses, ADHD and depression affect people with epilepsy?
On behalf of the University of Edinburgh, UK
About the study
Little is known about the effects of some medications used to treat psychoses, ADHD and depression on the quality of life of people with epilepsy. Sometimes, doctors don’t prescribe these medications to people with epilepsy, because they are not sure if they would be suitable for them.
The researchers would like to carry out a study. They would like to find out if some people with epilepsy who have been prescribed certain medications in the past have shown a difference in their quality of life.
The researchers would like your help to plan this study, by finding out if you think it is important and would be helpful for people with epilepsy.
When will this study be recruiting?
Now until 17 December 2018
What will participants be asked to do?
