Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological problems affecting approximately 1% of the world’s population with
higher incidence among elderly individuals. Although depression is a common comorbid condition in patients with epilepsy,
there is a paucity of information regarding depression in geriatric patients with epilepsy. This study analysed a
group of 83 patients affected by different epilepsy phenotypes accompanied by mental disorders, especially depression.
Antiepileptic and antipsychotic drug treatment has been evaluated, particularly a positive effect of the new antiepileptics
(monotherapy and polytherapy) both on the reduction of seizures and mental disorders.
