My 4 yr old son was diagnosed in April with absence seizures. He was started on Lamictal in which he developed Steven Johnsons Syndrome from it. He was then changed to Topamax at the end of April. It seemed to have been working fine up until about 3 weeks ago. Now his seizures are back and have came back strong and aggresively. The neurologist said he runs the risk of losing his speech because they are located in his temporal lobe if we cant get the meds to control them so we are increasing his dosage. Has anyone experienced this problem or have suggestions for other medicines with less side affects???
