Ask about RNS (responsive neurostimulation) for seizures! Got my life back. I get seizures sometimes, but I got control.

She started having seizures when around 8 months old. I took her to the neurologist and he put her on Keppra 1.25 twice a day. It was 12 days before she had another seizure. We have done EEGs and MRI and nothing found. Now at almost 10 months old and 4 to 5 more seizures they have her on Keppra same dose and Onfi .25 in the morning and .40 in the evening. She is still having seizures about once every 7 to 12 days apart.
