Hello, I am a Mom who's 14 y.o. son has just been diagnosed with generalized seizure disorder, JME. This is totally out of the blue and we have no history of seizure disorder in our families. The neurologist we have seen has put him on Zonegran only. He has had 1 grand mal seizure so far. His first EEG was normal. Then he had a sleep deprived EEG which was positive. The M.D. put him on Zonegran. I looked it up and it says it is for adults and an adjunct therapy to other meds. This seems odd to me and I am wondering if anyone out there with teenagers have been put on Zonegran with success? I would appreciate any help as we are all very scared and the Travolta tragedy hit at the same time. Thank you.
