Epistatus, Does Anyone Use This As Rescue Medication.
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

My son had a big seizure, his mouth was very wet with frothy blood stained spit. The Buccallam didn't seem to work, probably because it wasn't absorbed. Epistatus is a lesser amount and absorbed more readily I have been told
He needed oxygen for 30 minutes to get his sats back up. Thank God the paramedics got there quickly
He may need to go back on Sodium Valproate, it's the only one that stopped the seizures. He is Autistic with learning difficulties. So complex and vulnerable. Anyone else… read more

I am on Sodium Valproate, alongside Keppra, Topiramate, Pregabalin, and Vitamin D3 with Folate(as my body gets stripped of both). For rescue meds I either get oral Clobazam, or Diazepam.

Важен Показател-Валпроат( Е С 4 Пъти По Малко От Най Малката Допустима Граница )
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I had blood tests done. Important indicator - Valproate (is 4 times less than the smallest permissible limit)
And TSH Thyroid hormone, which is 1.5 times above the norm. I know valproate is an important indicator and low values lead to seizures. I drink Konvulex chrono-DEPAKIN (in 800 mg per day, but apparently not enough. How many of you take DEPAKIN?
In what weights? In combination with what drugs?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

I am not a doctor to give you advise on this matter.
Hope all turns out ok.
Have a blessed day.
