The only thing that I haven't had to deal with until maybe mid 2000's I found out I have type 2 diabetes. That and the medication made me get dehydrated quite often. I have always had dealt with stress and Sleep deprived because I was hyperactive and insomnia. So I don't think that did it. But aa the years went by and added medication for diabetes I became more prone to dehydration. I couldn't drink enough water to stay hydrated. The day I had my last seizure after all them years I was so… read more

My 9 year old missed his levetiracetam this morning. We did not realize it until noon. He takes his medicine twice a day. Every 12 hours. We try to take it every time at the same time.
