For anyone taking gabapentin, note that the FDA has released this recall on 11/24/14:

ISSUE: Aurobindo Pharma USA is voluntarily recalling lot GESB14011-A of Gabapentin Capsules, USP 300 mg 100-count bottles to the consumer level. The product lot has been found to contain some empty capsules.

Hi everyone, I wondered if there are any of you that put your child on the ketogenic diet and what kind of results you have seen? My son was diagnosed with epilepsy almost 2 years ago and has been on several different medications, with the doses increased and they continue to not be effective. He has had about 4 grand mal seizures, the last one just about a month ago. His medication was increased and things were quiet for a while, now we're back to more seizures. Does anyone else experience this? (Sorry for so many questions!) Thank you so much, Cathy

Thanks Mom22 and Amy!  I am not tech savvy at all.  I thought I was adding the link.  Let's keep each other informed when the third edition comes out!

Your link is undefined, but googling the title works. I have often linked people to the copy on wrightslaw which is from 2011, always keen to know if a third edition comes out.

Been awhile since I posted... but my 5 year old baby girl is not doing any better. She had and eeg done and it showed a lot of seizures. Besides that she has been sick with pneumonia, strep throat and pink eye... praying she will get well and stay well soon then maybe we can get the seizures to stop.

Hey everyone

Just though I would share our story of how things turned out with our son's epilepsy and how an Hemispherectomy changed our life.  

Please watch our youTube video


or just type in Josiah's Hemispherectomy in Google

Please take this anonymous survey this weekend, 10/2-10/5. As I finish my college degree, I'm researching and projecting about career possibilities for my future and the future of my family. My goal is to hear from other Moms who are also juggling work, being a parent and caring for your child with seizures. This survey is brief, completely anonymous, and I greatly appreciate your input. My young son has a seizure disorder and I'm a single parent just trying to figure this out...

Thank You,
