He said that as my MRI scan and everything else is normal, there is no other explanation for the abnormal EEG results other than exposure to psychotropic medication. Apparantly if I had been taking benzodiazepines for a long time, then slow EEG activity might be expected, but not usually with A/Ds. I am curious to know whether this is something that anyone else has come across.
