New research covers treating MS early, identifying those at risk for AED-induced psychosis, & selecting a drug for epilepsy patients with migraines.

Several risk factors may help identify epilepsy patients who may be at higher risk for psychosis due to their antiepileptic drug treatment. Topiramate is an appropriate treatment for epilepsy patients with comorbid migraine.
