Just found this forum tonight through a link from this website:www.andrewsreiter.com/links.html
And I've spent over an hour reading and responding and thought I'd formally introduce myself.
I have two sons; both diagnosed with Epilepsy when they were 7 and 12 respectively. My oldest son's Janz-Myoclonic Epilepsy has been very easily controlled with Depakote but my youngest son has had a significantly more difficult struggle with finding a solution.
My youngest had 3 years seizure free in his teens while taking Topamax and Lamictal. When his seizures came back, he was switched to Keppra and Lamictal. We had 9 months seizure free and the came back a year ago. He's now on Keppra, Lamictal and Vimpat.
I hope to learn from all of you and hopefully help my youngest son find some healing as well.
