My daughter Eloise who is 4 & 1/2 is about to try yet another drug combination for her 3 types of seizures. Has anyone tried topomax, clobozam and Carbamazepine, with carbamazepine being the new drug which will be added in. We have almost weened lamictal out of the mix.
Her behaviour is terrible - impulsive, aggressive and non-compliant. Docs think it may be the interactions of drugs causing the terrible behaviour, but i don't see how throwing another one in will help. She was on Carbamazepine when she was 18mths but for a short time because she went withdrawn and lost her ability to speak on it. They are thinking now she is older it might be ok. I HATE this drug roundabout that epilepsy brings. It sometimes feels the drug roundabout and side effects are worse than the seizures.
