Our son was recently diagnosed with a seizure disorder after a day of what appeared to be 5 partial seizures that were localized to only his mouth. He also had an abnormal EEG. His neuro wants to immediately put him on medicine, but we are worried about side effects. Also, if we don't know what type of seizures he might have, how do we know the medicine will even work?
We are getting a 2nd opinion next week, but are worried, scared and confused. Has anyone else decided not to medicate after receiving this diagnoses?
