Does anti-seizure medication help with sleep walking and sleep talking?

Some do. Some medications have anti seizure activities and are used for sleep walking. However in most cases, medications are not needed. Not all anti seizure medications work for sleep walking.
Generally not. Commonly used anti seizure medications are not effective for sleep walking and talking. Benzodiazepines, some of which are used for treating seizures can be effective for sleep related problems.
Aed. Some seizure medications could suppress sleep talking/walking. Usually these would be more sedating. None of typical seizure medications are well known to do this but long acting benzodiazepines like Clonazepam are occasionally used to help with seizure control and likely would help.

Should I have any concern my son is starting to talk in his sleep. He is also sleep walking. From time to time when he is awake he tells me he hear someone calling his name.

Sleep . Sleep walking and talking are very common in kids - 10% of kids sleepwalk some time between ages 3 and 10. Luckily, it is something they usually grow out of by adolescence. Here are a few tips to help him (and you!) cope with the current situation: -if he's sleepwalking or getting up, the most important thing you can do is make the environment safe (close doors, hide electrical cords, lock windows, etc.) -if you find him up, just try and redirect him towards his bed without waking him - waking can make him upset and he could have a hard time going back to sleep. -try to have him get more sleep since fatigue can make sleep walking worse -establish a regular, quiet, calming routine before bed -there are medications that can help if he appears to be a danger to himself. This is something you can discuss with your child's doctor. If the sleep walking and talking are worsening, becoming more frequent, are effecting his and your ability to function during the day, or if you think he could be a danger to himself, contact his doctor.
