When Nico got his VNS at 11 years old, he having dozens of seizures a day and status events that would land him in the hospital a few times a month. All while on 5 meds and 2 emergency neds. He went straight to no seizures. Over the next 9 years he had 2 grand mals, both caused by high fevers. And he got down to 2 meds during that time.
