This has been so helpful! Thank you and I will keep all of this in mind. Thank you for responding! My daughter has been severely allergic to Ethosuxamide and Lamictal out of the four we have tried. A small miracle has occurred, we were going to try Depakote by another Neurologist that I was not fond of (any of them, actually), but we weaned her off Keppra and since last Tuesday, my daughter has gone from over 200 per day to perhaps 1 absence seizure in the past few days!! NO meds on board at this time. She is getting an EEG next week. We’re just taking one day at a time without an explanation except since she’s been on meds, the seizures have risen to over 400%.
