I really can not comment to much on this drug, but what i do know is that my son had a seizure in april of 07 and one in dec. of 07. He was given htis drug the second go-round. I have noticed that he seems to not remember alot and for the very first time he did not obey staff at his school and kind of being "snippy" towards me, this is not like my "A" student. What is going on.
