Nov 30, 2017 · Daughter with Newly Diagnosed Generalized Absence Seizures in Epilepsy & Seizures

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%.

NO meds on board at this time. She is getting an EEG next week. We kept telling the doctors that her seizures were never that noticeable until we tried medications. And with 2 different times they thought our daughter had Stevens Johnson Syndrome, we were finished with putting her through anything else. It was a terrible experience. Just keep praying she continues this way without meds!

Thank you for the names of these meds. I have been looking at diet and this procedure. Good to know the procedure improved your seizures and might help my daughter!

Hi, I’m a new mom with a 7 year old daughter that was diagnosed on 01/21/2017 and has over 200 generalized absence seizures per day according to her EEG. MRI is negative. We have tried 4 different medications, Zarontin, Zonigran, Keppra and Lamactil. She is not responding to any and has even had severe allergic drug reactions to Zarontin and Lamactil. We’re to the point of being lost and don’t know what to do at this point. Can’t control seizures and she’s behind in school. Neurologists just says she’s an ‘exception’. Where to go next is what I desperately need to know without causing anymore harm to my child both physically and emotionally. I’m open to any suggestions and will do anything after meeting with three Neurologists since January 2017. Rochelle Morgan
