My 5 yr. old son was diagnosed with epilepsy this past summer and I have been going crazy since.
He was placed on Trileptal but the insurance pays for Oxcarbzepine and since they continued to raise the dosage my son for the past 2.5 weeks has been in trouble with his behavior at home and in school. (we have begun to lower the dosage)
At the beginning of school he was perfect then suddenly 2.5 weeks ago he went crazy throwing things, hitting, screaming, falling on the floor, slapping himself, charging others, name calling, whaling uncontrollably, and snapping out of the blue without an obvious triggers. He says he can’t control himself! Does anyone know of a medication for partial complex that does not cause such extreme behavior?
