Abstract—

The authors investigated the effect of oxcarbazepine on cognitive function in children and adolescents (6 to younger than 17 years of age) with newly diagnosed partial seizures in an open-label comparison with standard antiepileptic drug therapy (carbamazepine and valproate). No differences in cognitive tests were observed between oxcarbazepine and carbamazepine/valproate over a 6-month treatment period.
