Thanks for this info!

My daughter who is 5 takes that. She used to take it with keppra but now takes it with vimpat. I would recommend taking the extended release version which is called oxtellar XR. I found she had way less side effects and only has to take it once a day. Obviously with a 31 yr old he can tell you how he feels which is nice. I kind of have to observe. But I definitely would suggest that!

Where about was his “problem” area? Did he have deficits after surgery?

Maybe try contacting St. Jude? Patients there pay nothing. Maybe this way you will at least be in a bigger hospital? I can’t imagine how your feeling. Thinking of you and your family.

What meds are helping him remain seizure free? My daughter has focal seizures. Has been on multiple meds and 2 brain surgeries. Still seizures!

Thank you for your thoughts. From what heard it's obviously not 100% effective abc at this point I wouldn't want to put her through something like this if it's doesn't have more of a success rate.

We actually never started diet. Our neurologist is out of MA and we currently live in FL. It needs to be closely monitored so we decided to wait.

Has anyone had any experience with vagal stimulators for seizure control for their children?
