Morgan

Morgan is gone. We gave her back to God Wednesday morning. The one med that finally stopped her seizures, Lyrica, fried her kidneys. She was only a baby, I just can't believe she is gone.

New seizure med ?

I was reading about a new one, I think it is a new form of Gabapentin, maybe starts with a "P", but I have somehow lost the name. Does this sound familiar to anyone???

Re: New Here But Not To Epilepsy

Welcome, I am sorry you had to join us. Even though you don't have his seizures totally gone, it seems you have come along way with learning to live with it. I think that was the biggest breakthrough for me, when I stopped wanting to "cure" her and just found ways to live with it. We are 3 years thi...

Many of us have used it here. Some with success, but not all. It is normally an add on drug, given in addition to Pheno and/or KRr, The Vets maybe hoping to get him off Pheno using this. I wish you the best of luck.

I am so, so sorry this all happened. Morgan's seizures are one of the scariest things I have ever gone through in my life. You do get used to them a little better, but when they change , it throws you off again. Don't stress about the meds so much, if it stops the seizures he can have a normal life....

I feel like even if I can't help Morgan, but I can help someone else with what I have learned, then it makes this journey easier to deal with. Does that make any sense?

We can distract Morgan out of partials sometimes too but not GMs. They come on so fast, there is really no time.

Morgan turned 4 yeaterday

It really isn't a success story, but still remarkable. For a little girl with uncontrolled seizures since she was 7 months old, we are not complaining. Still tweaking meds and now trying a chiropractor.

Sorry you had to join us. Here are some hugs..hug,hug,hug. I have been dealing with this for almost 3 years now. Because Morgan's seizures are not controlled, it has not gotten easier for me, but I have learned to deal with it better. The worst mistake I made was not getting better educated and tota...

Morgan had gone 5 1/2 months without a seizure ( her longest run ever) and then had a Grand Mal within 8 hours of getting Heartworm meds .Now the best we have gotten is 1 month. The only thing I can wash her in is Dawn Dishwashing soap. The triggers are amazing. Now if only we could get our Vets to ...
