when you say you believe in keeping meds at the lowest effective dose, do you feel the same way about keto? is it best to work up to the lowest effective ratio? and is it effective enough if EEG is still bad but clinical seizures are controlled?

REPLY

What is considered effective seizure control? No seizures? 2 or 3 a month? Is seizure free an obtainable goal?

REPLY

for someone with intractable epilepsy what are some of the typical things that would make them a good candidate for surgery?

REPLY

can you comment on the diagnosis of benign myoclonic epilepsy of infancy and its long term medical and behavioral prognosis

REPLY

Wonderful information! Thank you Dr. Wirrel and Dr. Wetgen for doing this.

REPLY

How can you diagnose benign rolandic vs benign myoclonic?

REPLY

I have a child who’s seizures were very controlled during adolescence but as he is moving into puberty he is having exponentially more seizures. We are in the process of changing meds now. How common is this and is it likely that we can get it back under controll?
