my 9yr old son has been fitting for 2 yrs.The docs have used words like landau kleffner and benign rolandic with spikes. He has had speech problems since the fits started.He is on epilim 500 and they gave him prednisolone (steroids)to help his speech which worked for a while till the steroids were stopped. They have now put him back on prednisolone ,epilim and a drug called zonegram(zonisimide). From the 1st day he took zonegram his voice went completely , we can not understand a word he says.His personality and facial expression also appears to have changed.Can anyone tell me about their experience with zonegram.I have expressed my concerns but the docs have told me to be patient...Are their any other drugs which have proven results in this sort of epilepsy. Thank you

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
