Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • my son has been taking depakine chrono 500 for 6 years now, he had two seizures when he was 9 years old on the same day, two hours apart, he did`t have any sort of movment when he had them, it was like he froze for 4 minutes or so in both times, on the same day he started taking depakine and didn`t have any thing of the kind since, about two years ago i started noticing strange face expressions , like he was swallowing and squinching his mouth, and doesn`t stop till i shout or move him, and eventually he stops even if i don`t call out his name,
    he says he doesnt control it,and feel as if there is a soft and warm sensation making him do them. i consulted many doctors, the last one said they`r tics & nothing to be afraid of, I worry for my son, and want to be sure that they`r not signs of something else,
    the last doctor told me that we must start cutting down on the medication since he is seizure free for this long.
