    Hello derbal,

    A new report from the Epilepsy Foundation claims it can Help. According to their article...it can decrease seizure activity up to 36%. But, I have noted in other groups & reports that it Has eliminated seizures in some.

    If he has been on those meds more than 6 weeks & is still having seizures, then your son/daughter need to go back to his Neuro & ask about trying another med/treatment. Or go for a Second Opinion! Preferably to a Seizure Specialist/Epileptologist. Helpful Hints has an article that may help you locate one in your area. Also, look for Journals & have your Family start one Today. It can Help pinpoint Triggers. We All have Triggers. And they vary from one person to the next.

    Knowledge Is Power. So, please, continue to Learn all you can about All aspects of his disorders. If you have more questions or just need someone to talk to, I will be here for you. Hugs

    Love Candi

    P.S. Can you tell me what type of seizures your grandson is experiencing?
