My son had his first grand mal seizure in a year and a half. His last one was June 2007 up until two weeks ago. He is two, they started when he was four days old. I was hoping he would grow out of them, but he obviously hasn't. He is on Trileptal.... they didn't raise his dose after his last seizure. I wonder if I should request it or not???? Any advise??

Sorry to hear that; it's very dissapointing after being stable for so long! Talk to your ped about the med dose. How long has he been on this antiseizure med? If it's been awhile (years) it may also be a plan to discuss another antiseizure med....sometimes they can become "immune" to the med after awhile. Sometimes it also takes more than one medication; at one time Keirah was on 4 antiseizure meds at once. Good luck!
