My son will be 4 in July and has been on Trileptal for seizures since about 18 months. He never had severe seizures. He would just pause, roll his eyes, and be fine after that. They never caught one on an EEG, but the episodes stopped when he started on medication.
Recently the insurance company started refusing to cover brand name trileptal and switched us to generic, with the pediatric neurologists ok. Not sure if that's related or not but thought I'd mention it.
2 times in the last 2 weeks, he has woken up in the middle of the night, cried, and when we went to see what was wrong he threw up. This morning he threw up 10 minutes after waking for the day.
I'd think it was just a stomach bug, except that he seems completely normal, happy, and not sick at all for the rest of the day.
This made me wonder if it could be seizure related. He's not verbal enough to explain any seizures side effects, so for all I know he could be having a seizure in the middle of the night and vomiting afterwards.
Has anybody had vomiting as an after effect of a seizure?
