Nov 17, 2016 · #AsktheMayoMom about Pediatric Epilepsy in Epilepsy & Seizures

My son, who is almost 15 yrs old and has developmental disabilities, has had seizures since he was 2.5 years old. His seizures have gotten really bad since puberty hit 5 years ago and they keep changing. He has failed over 8 medications, and the ones that he is on now seem to be adding new types of seizures. My question is, how is it that a medication used to TREAT a certain type of seizure, causes them instead? He is on Trileptal 15ml twice a day and Onfi 2 ml am and 3 ml pm. He has been having sporadic subclinicial seizures and atypical absent seizures since starting Onfi.
Thanks!
