child aged 3 1/2 diagnosed with west syndrome at 7 months treated at first with vigabatrin which stopped the seizures but gave him the effect of being Autistic, Within a few days of change of medication he reverted back to ''normal behaviour'' becoming affection, tactile and everything he was before the dreaded wests struck. We have had good and bad times,since due to him outgrowing his Med dosage. but the good times have been very ,very good.
however when a recurrence of the epilepsy happens he starts blinking quite seriously and becomes quite out of balance and we have to start adjusting his meds again. What are these periods of blinking doing to him can they cause him any damage. are there any other parents whose child has these symptons
that could give advice or info on the side effects
