My 6 year old son has epilepsy and is on Keppra and Phenobarbitol. He typically has 4 to 5 seizures daily that last anywhere from 1 or 2 seconds to 30 seconds. We have come to call them a "startle" seizure. The medications have kept him out of status for quite some time. When he has a common cold, his seizures disappear. Has anyone else had this experience with their children? Does anyone know how or why this would happen? Any input is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
