October turned out to be a very difficult month. Ashleigh had seizures on three Thursdays in a row in October after 10+ years of no seizures.
We think we identified the culprit as the drug Provigil. We were just doing a trial of the drug and we think it caused the seizures. We tried to do everything right by checking with the epileptologist before we started the drug but it definitely did not work out.
The scariest part is that Ashleigh’s seizures almost always go into status which is so dangerous and scary. It definitely set Ashleigh back in all aspects but I think things are now under control. Her medications had to be nearly doubled though. We can just hope that these are the last seizures for a long, long time.
