memory and learning problems from seizure activity or medication?

We discovered our daughter was having nocturnal seizures when she was 2. Neurologist found abnormal activity showing on eeg, so she was put on trileptal. She continued to have periodic seizures (some that had to be stopped with diastat and additional medication), so they added Kepra, as well (about a year and a half later). She is now in kindergarten and seems to struggle more than our other children did. She has not had a seizure for a year (that we know of) and her last eeg in June was normal (first time). I am wondering if her learning issues are due to medication or previous seizure activity. Anyone have experience or insight on this? I just like to be informed:-)
