My 6 yr old son was diagnosed with BRE in Aug 2010, we saw the neuro and he gave us the option to medicate or not. He told us that BRE does not cause any damage to the brain and that if he were in our position he would not medicate either unless things got worse or he started having seizures during the day. The main reason we do not want to medicate is the side effect of meds can be so bad! So far since his first seizure Aug 19th, he has had one to two seizures every month since. 7 seizures counting the first one, the last one last night! They are all the same and only last a min or so and then he is fine and goes back to sleep! Of course I watch him after while he is sleeping to make sure he's okay. Are there any others out there who choose not to medicate for BRE? If so what are your exp good or bad, did things get worse, (example-turn into grand mal seizures ect. ) Dr. did say there was like a 10% chance of BRE turning into generalized tonic/clonic seizures. Any advice or help would be greatly appreicated. This just scares me to death!
