Hi, this is my first post here. Am writing re my 15 year old daughter who has been treated for bp NOS since age 6. She is taking a number of meds.
We had a terrible problem with her being seriously addicted to video games. She used to play for hours a day--now all computers, cell phones, etc. are kept locked away, password protected, etc. I believe she was experiencing partial seizures from video games--sometimes she was in an almost catatonic state after playing for a while. These can be very tough to pick up on an EEG, so it took 5 neurologists till someone agreed to try her on Lamictal. That was 5 weeks ago, and she's going through some agitation now at 100 mg.
Does anyone else have suspicions about weird neurological activity occurring during video games? I think neurocircuitry in ADHD and mood disorders makes people more vulnerable.
