Aprox ever 3 month or aftera fall on head, Memory loss & confusion increase after the seizure due to seizure activity or ? meds used. Seems to lose more memory each time. Balance is poor, loss of taste since on the meds. the more meds he takes the more symptoms. Posture also worse the more he takes. If he does not take the meds he will have more seizures.
