May 27, 2019 · Epilepsy medication side effects - hair loss and weight gain in Epilepsy & Seizures

My son 16,5 y, recently (2 months) got epi diagnoses and started taking drugs for his therapy.
(each day: Valproic acid – Depakine, Tegretol (carbamazepinum) and Vimpat (lacosamide)).
He is experiencing:
1. Hair loss
2. Weight gain
Is there good suggestion – experience how to stop hair loss and enhance hair growth, without therapy changes?
What about weight gain? Anyhow speeding the metabolism?
I’ll be thankful for any useful advice.
Regards
