Anyone have a child with seizures?

My almost 8 yr was diagnoised with nocturnal seizes in May! We finally got his meds worked out and he is on triliptol but this is the scariest thing we have ever been through... any advice?

  • None of my kids do, but I have them. Have had them for 31 years, most of my life. It is hard on children having seizures. I was made fun of all through out school. Just let him know you are there and comfort him.

  • I'm very sorry this happened. I don't have a child with them, but my little sister began getting seizures at about that age. My only advice is make sure he takes his meds regularly. Don't wake him up in the middle of the night. Bright light, dizziness, and being overly tired tend to trigger her seizures.

  • My son used to have Febrile Seizures. Very scary. Glad you got the meds worked out. Best of luck.
