Which is better typical or atypical antipsychotics for aggression and agitation associated with epilepsy?

In brief: Response

Your question is somewhat generic.
Would prefer to use the newer atypical antipsychotics due to less adverse effects and lower incidence of tardive dyskinesia, but am concerned with behavioral events that can accompany complex partial seizures. The latter likely needs better control, but cannot advise further, as you do not provide a medication list. ?Better as Concierge visit?
