I am a new member. I have a son, age 20. He originally had one seizure gran mal in 2006. Almost two years later, out of the blue again while sleeping, another one. This one in Nov. 07. Subsequently the hospital did not give meds (when they were ordered so he had two more that day. Keppra given. Then in the hospital for 4 days without med. in Jan. for video EEG. Nothing showed as before. Took him off Keppra, and 10 days later while sleeping, another seizure. Put him on Keppra and Lamictal. Increased Lamictal gradually up to 150mg/ 2x's day. Will be off Keppra by the Wed next week. Continue with Lamictal. Seeing Doc. tomorrow.
This is my question: HAS Anyone out there been in this situation. Just seizures while asleep, and on Lamictal. DOES lamictal actually work to prevent seizures. MY concern is that is it possible or what is the likelyhood that he could get day time (awake) seizures. HOW does lamictal fair with preventing seizures. My son is planning to resume driving within the next week or so. Has anyone had any long term success with Lamictal and being seizure free.
Omega 3 twice a day, maganese l day..and vit B6 has been given too. I undersand that Omega 3 is used in seizure control too.
Just looking for feedback.
