Help epilepsy researchers plan research about the use of treatments for psychoses, ADHD and depression in people with epilepsy

Study title

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?

You will be asked to answer a short online survey. This will ask for your views on the proposed research.

The survey will usually take around 10 minutes to complete. You will not be asked to provide any information that identifies you, such as your name.

Who can take part?

You can take part if you live in the UK and have experience of epilepsy. This includes:

  • People with epilepsy
  • Family members or carers of people with epilepsy

Who is conducting the research?
