Any drug besides depakote for generalized juvenile epilepsy?
My 22 yr old sine takes Depakote (4 yrs) for absence and grand mal seizures. He is sooo tired could sleep 16 hours per day… cannot wake up and get out of bed to start his day (or take his meds on time every 12 hrs). Also has to take antidepressants and ADHD meds trying to focus and be productive. He feels like a failure because he cannot function … I think the drug has him too doped up and is ruining his chances at a normal life. Please help!! Jake, plz let others respond first thx
