  • I have it due to a botched epidural (I'll tell that story later in journals...)... I had a few types of seizures, the worst being grand mal... I take Dilantin now though and haven't had any while on it. (100mg 3 times a day)

  • My DD, who was a healthy eight year old, had a massive seizure this past summer. It lasted almost 24 hours and she was in a medically induced coma for 11 days. Since then she has been getting better every day. Right now she is on a huge dose of Keppra and clozeapim. Since her seizure is not from epilepsy and they don't really know it is from I don't really have any other information to share.

    Good Luck!
