  • which one and why is she on it? Did she lack oxygen when she was born?

  • she started off on topamax, but was changed to carbatrol due to side effects from the other. She is on it because she has grand mal's and absence spells. She did have lack of blood and oxygen which caused her to also have Peri ventricular luekomalacia. She also has had high blood pressure since birth and is still on meds for that as well. Reflux meds too! Since birth!

  • oh yes, they don't know what caused any of these problems ... she has pretty much been a human pin cushion from birth, and I have been told many times now that she truly is a medical mystery... we will never know what caused all of this...
