The August 2023 issue of the Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (JCACAP) has been published online.
This issue features an invited review by Dr. Anita N. Datta of the University of British Columbia exploring the impacts of anti-seizure medication on psychiatric disorders in children with epilepsy. Dr. Datta’s review outlines potential negative behavioural and psychotropic effects of anti-seizure medications as well as potential positive psychotropic effects.
A commentary in this issue by Drs. Katharine L. Loeb, Karen S. Bernstein, and Gina Dimitropoulos discuss the role of weight restoration in the treatment of atypical anorexia nervosa and suggest that other aspects of treatment should take priority.
