My 7 year old daughter was diagnosed with Epilepsy a year ago this coming April. She has been on Depakote since the beginning. It seems to be doing very well at controlling the seizures, but she has become a whole different child. It breaks my heart, and every day seems to get a little bit worse. She is regressing academicaly, socially, and emotionally. Her neuro seems to think it is all "behavior issues". He doesn't want to change the meds but has mentioned it a couple of times. He seems to think she will be like this no matter what we put her on. I want my little girl back. Anybody else struggling with this?
