Hi! My 6 year old was diagnosed at 4 years of having epilepsy. He currently takes Keppra and has break through seizures (usually in clusters) about 4 times a year. He is also a snorer and I believe suffers from sleep apnea as he exhibits all the classic signs. We have an appointment tomorrow with an ENT. I wonder if anybody else has a child with epilepsy who also has sleep apnea. Also, if your child does or did have sleep apnea, was it ever considered that your child have his or her tonsils and adenoids removed? I'm guessing this will be the recommendation once we see the ENT and want to know if anybody else has experienced this and if the sleep apnea was cured post surgery, did it also help with your child's seizures. Thanks!
