Logen- No Food?!

I'm not sure what's going on with Logen now. I don't know if this is a side effect of the Keppra of what. He's not eaten breakfast OR lunch since he's been home for the break. His teacher says he eats at school. I'm skeptical now. What they say is eating may not be eating to me. So, I'm calling the Neuro first thing in the morning to ask. Our last appt she brought up his weight gain- and some concerns. He's been in the same size since before Parker got here!!! Jan 2006 I remember buying some pants he can still wear. We increased the does to 2x/day on Thanksgiving- and we've seen no seizure activity since! (YAY Logen!) We shall see on the eating. Say a prayer for the little guy. And his Momma. I've been having some nasty chest pain the last few days. :(

Logen is now up to 6 medications a day. He's 5!!!!! This is insane!

  1. Wow what a great story. That is great that he has been seizure free. It is hard to find the right dose. My son is on Trileptal for complex partial seizures. It is scary thing. I hope the neuro can help and get your little boy to eat.

    My son suffered an in-utero stroke, has rh cp, seizures and more. We got to lots of therapies I hope you don't mind me stopping by feel free to stop by mine too.


  2. Good Morning,

    I noticed my son's appetite decrease with he was first put on Keppra and when they increase the dose. I also noticed that Keppra also gave Ben muscle weakness(which can be a side effect). For weeks after we put him on the drug or upped it, he didnt want to put much (or any) weight on his legs.

    Good Luck!
