Our sons pediatric neurologist asked us to search the net for information bout the use of piracetam for the treatment of epilepsy that hasn't responded to conventional drugs. He says that colleagues from Russia claim hat it as been used successfully there I found 3 references to articles, but was unable to access them. We have tried :valporal,mysolin,frisium sabril,lamictal,felbamate,clonazepam unsuccessfully.
ACTH worked while he was getting the shots. We are currently using the ketogenic diet, but don't have complete seizure control.
