Our teenage son began having seizures just over two years ago. Once he was put on meds we had success with Depakote and he was seizure free for approximately 16 months. This past March he had his gallbladder and appendix removed. About 2 week following he had a breakthrough seizure. He has had a total of 5 tonic colonic seizures since his surgery. The doc keeps upping the meds. We've asked his neuro if and how these could be related. On of his other doctors suggested that the gallbladder remove could be effecting how long the meds stay in his system. Recent labs show therapeutic levels of Depakote although after his seizure in August he took his meds an hour later then the labs take another 2 hours later showed low level of Depakote in his system.
