Anticonvulsants: Anticonvusants are effective in treating aggression in a variety of disorders, including irritable mania, epilepsy, dementia and in individuals who have experienced head trauma. Because huntingtons is a neurodegenerative disorder, there is extremely abnormal brain electrical activity. Valproate or Carbamazepine may be effective if there are no other contraindications.
