@A MyAutismTeam Member, yes, the first medication tried worked for him. I find it strange/wonder why autism and epilepsy coincide with one another. I wish doctors knew why. Anyhow, his seizures are under control which I am grateful for. As for medical marijuana, I don't want to experiment because if he were to have another big seizure, it wouldn't be good. He broke his jaw last time, almost lost his bottom teeth.

@A MyAutismTeam Member thats unfortunate, I read up that certain seizures can present at by ages 5 and 16, so sorry your son caught them on the maximum end.
Have yous considered a surgery route I believe its called resection? This is of the brain has lesion or lesions?
Are meds working at all currently or what is?
There is a case here where I live about a boy just being prescribed medical marijuanna made legal through our government, it had originally been seized at customs when him and Mum were travelling to London but they fought it and won!

Unfortunately, I do not have a child that is having these issues. I hope it gets resolved.

Joy, my son starting having seizures, his luck, the biggest ones there are, at age 16. Had all the tests in the book, and nothing was found, it really sucks.

my younger son had seizures but they trickled off around 5, we found a lot of triggers and avoid those, no reason to assume they would not come back, as his food and sensory sensitivities are still prominent.
