My daughter is 16 years old and has petit mals. She is taking dilantin. This drug does not appear to be agreeing with her as it has affected her periods dramatically, and now she is taking something to correct that, which has bad side affects too.
These petit mals have greatly affected her life and we are presently in the hospital for her to be monitored. Hopefully we can get some answers. Apparently there are not many medications someone of her age can take and especially when diagnosis is not complete.
