Hi to all,
I was wandering if their are any mom's with a adult disabled chikd.
I have concerns about a VNS implant for seizures.
I have noticed the behavior of aggression.
Any advise.

He has always done well with the VNS, this is his 3rd one, But the doctor told me it was one of the newest, and that it would help with his depression an moods, because it worked with his heart beat.
When his heart speeds up, it would go off automatically, But his moods are more unstable then ever. He does not like change, but normally this stuff he understands, But not now.
I wander if some of the seizure meds could be tapered off.

What is your concern, the VNS is helpful for chronic seizures. Is your child on any mood stabilizing medication for the aggression?
