Thank you for posting your query.
It is good to note that your husband is seizure free for more than nine years.
However, his current problems seem to be the mood disorder
and memory problems. Epilim chrono
, on the one hand, is good in improving mood disorder, but on the other hand, may adversely affect the memory.
Tegretol, however, has good effect on mood disorder, as well as good for epilepsy
. Moreover, it does not worsen the memory. So, one option is to increase the dose of tegretol.
Other drg that is beneficial for both epilepsy and mood disorder is lamotrigine
Please discuss these issues with your neurologist
