Abstract Impaired memory is a common and often debilitating complaint in patients with epilepsy. Overlapping variables such as seizure control, attentional dysfunction, and mood disorders further complicate diagnosis and management. Direct therapy for memory deficits associated with epilepsy is rarely attempted. The varied pharmacological (AED selection, cholinesterase inhibitors, stimulants, antidepressants, and herbal supplements) and nonpharmacological approaches to cognitive remediation in epilepsy patients are reviewed.
