My 15 year old had his first seizure on July 28, 2010. We went to a neurologist had a cat scan, MRI, EEG and a 24 hour EEG and they did blood work in the ER the night it happened, all the test are normal. The neuro thought no need for med may just be a one time thing. Then on October 1, 2010 he had three more seizures. He makes a funny breathing noisy, jerks, bites his tongue and is completely out of it until they end then he seems tired and confused. We had him taken To MUSC in Charleston when the last ones happened, they did not do any further testing while in the hospital other than more blood work which was normal. They started him on Keppra and asked that we do another EEG and get the records from his neuro where we live. We done all that and the EEG came back normal again. The seizures always happen when he is going to sleep. We had to take him to the childrens er back at MUSC yesterday and they said it was the Keppra causing all the problems. He had been very ill, tired, dizzy and just not at all himself. They changed hiom to Lamitcal 25mg take once at night for two weeks then start twice daily for two weeks then we see the doctor again. I am so very scared and confused, wondering if anyone my have any info on Lamictal.
