My four year old was diagnosed w/ BRE a few months ago. First seizure 5/10/10, second seizure a month later. She had an abnormal 30 min EEG, then admitted to hospital after second seizure for 24 hr EEG- which came back abnormal (80% of night was abnormal spiking). Had an ambulatory 48 hr EEG a few weeks later (when we changed neuro's) which was also abnormal ('frequent' nighttime spikes). Keppra 200 mg at night only- started in July 2010.
Just had follow up 48 hr ambulatory EEG and it came back TOTALLY normal.
I am so happy and SO SO SO surpirsed. I never thought all of her spiking would disappear w/ the start of a med she only takes 1x per day.
So happy. Just wanted to share some good news!
thanks for reading!
