Eight DSM-III bipolar patients with seizure disorders were treated in an open study evaluating the effects of maintenance lithium treatment on affective relapses and clinical seizure activity. Lithium was effective in preventing the recurrence of affective episodes without worsening seizure frequency in patients with active seizures and did not induce seizures in those whose seizures were in remission. Lithium appears to be safe and effective in bipolar disorders associated with epilepsy and may have an anticonvulsant effect in some patients. One patient showed remission of both affective and seizure symptoms on lithium alone.

Depression in Temporal Lobe Epilepsy A Review of Prevalence

Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is the most frequent of the epileptic.. the safety and efficacy of lithium in epilepsy than for antidepressants [36].

Preoperatively, 43% of these patients had a lifetime prevalence of depression, with no difference between the surgical groups. However, in the postoperative phase, the mesial temporal resection group experienced a significantly higher rate of depression, both recurrence and de novo, suggesting that perhaps disruption of these structures carries a higher risk of depression as a complication postoperatively. recruited 60 patients undergoing two types of surgery (mesial temporal lobe resection and nonmesial temporal lobe resection) and followed them longitudinally.

Lithium is not a drug for epilepsy, as someone else has previously mentioned. I feel bad for you, although I am going through a lot of the same.

However, you might find that the details of how their patients' symptoms showed up could teach you something. Granted, the emphasis is on psychosis, which is by definition not "bipolar II". Here's an interesting article you might want to dig up on the subject of temporal lobe epilepsy; your local librarian could help you get a copy); judging from the abstract (take that link), the 10 cases described might be worth reading through to compare to what you see in your son.
