    Seizure Background
    18 year old son who has A-typical autism and learning disability. Began having seizures of two types at the age of 10 years old. One grand mal event followed by anywhere between 10-30 petit mal seizures daily. Seizures were controlled by a fairly low dose of Topamax. One break-through grand mal at the age of 12 and infrequent breakthrough petit mal seizures over the next 3 or so years. Didn't like the effects of the Topamax so after being completely seizure free for about 1 1/2 years weaned him off and he had been totally off meds for about 1 1/2 years with no seizure activity whatsoever. About 2 weeks ago he suffered a significant grand mal after dozing off. Went immediately back to Neurologist and put him on Keppra. That did not go well and we switched him almost immediately back to Topamax. Since then he has had 3 more grand mal seizures all in the middle of the night. He is still on his start up dose.
