Hello, I Was Wondering If Anyone Else On Here Had The Same Start As My Son.

Hello, I Was Wondering If Anyone Else On Here Had The Same Start As My Son.

We switched adhd medicine to strattera and he also got a stomach bug. This caused status epilepticus. This was the first time for any seizure activity. We were admitted to children's hospital and he's on keppra now with emergency medicine for a seizure lasting longer than 5 minutes. He hasn't had any seizures since coming home from the hospital (knock on wood). Just curious if anyone has had a similar experience, thank you 😊 🙏

We all have situations that finally lead to an epilepsy diagnosis. My first grand mal was how mine did 50 years ago. Now son will be protected from same type or of future ones with the right meds to control any. So glad now we have the medical knowledge like any other health issue.
