Thank you for posting your query.
In your son's case, as he has epilepsy and depression
, it would be better to use either divalproex
. This is because these two medications are effective against both epilepsy and depression. Also, it is better to add anti depressant
such as escitalopram as his quality of life would be much better, if his depression is also treated.
