YET HE IS GETTING PARTIAL COMPLEX SEIZURES EVERY THREE DAYS
Please help.Please help
I hate to say but that is very common. I have complex partial seizures and my seizures change. When I was younger it wasn't that uncommon for me to have a couple a day. It has taken me forever to get them controlled. I still have seizures but I can go a month without seizures at times but they still pop up every now and then.They are not as profound. I have been on a lot of meds and it took many years to get the seizures somewhat controlled. It doesn't matter how many meds, it just is trial and error. I finally was part of a drug study for lamictal/lamotrigine before it was approved by the FDA in 1983. It with another med have done quite well but like I said I still have them. Not every drug works for everybody. I have tried so many. I am 52 and it still isn't perfect.
i been having sezisures sense 1986, i was for years taking diantan name brand. i take the same medicine your son's taking now sense jan. 2012. its not as good as the dilantan was, for me name brand works better than genatic. for me
