The last one was Christmas morning. the neurologist says that it is congenital and caused by migraines,it however, happens once per month just around the time her period starts.She was on a drug called epiim. It was not helping but now she is being tried with keppra. No she is still living at home

How recently and what sort of seizures does she have? Does she live alone? How far from home is she?

She needs to check in with Student Health services on campus. It would also be advisable for her to get a local physician for emergencies.

The most important is that she keep to her med regimen, report any unusual activity (seizure related) and keep a medical log for her regular appointments with her physician.
