I am so thankful to have the input from people who have taken seizure meds, especially Topamax. My 18 year old son who has a learning disability and a-typical autism has suffered from seizures off and on since the age of 10. Only two grand mal's at ages 10 and 12 and numerous (daily) absence seizures. They have been mostly controlled with meds (topamax) even to the point that we weaned him off a few years ago after he had been completely seizure free for 1 year and a half. Once off the meds he was seizure free for the same amount of time. Just within the last two weeks he has started having grand mal seizures and we have been back to the neurologist who initially put him on Keppra (which DID NOT go well) and have now switched back to the topamax. Due to his learning disability he is not able to communicate efficiently and I always wonder exactly how he is feeling and if the meds are making him feel weird. I can somewhat tell by his behavior and routine reactions, but it's hard to know if it's the meds or the seizure activity. All of the information I've seen posted here helps a lot! Any input would be greatly appreciated!
