Hi all, my son Alex is 8 and had his first seizure in Nov 2004 which turns out he has double cortex symdrone which can cause different types of seizures and adhd, dyslexia, bipolar, and other things. He started on depokote but the doc changed it due to having to drawn blood to check levels, then he was on 150 mg of Trileptal but the seizures were still coming 2 to 3 to 9 times a day some lasting 10 to 15 mins long. He had 2 gran mals in April that resulted in 5 hr visits at the ER. Now he's on Limictal 300 mg a day and nope the seizures are still every day but they don't last as long. He's on homebound as the teachers at school were un sure how to help him as every seizure he falls forward or backward and you never know when he will have them so now he wears a helmet too.
Hope your son is better.
