Since Sophie had her third relapse since surgery, we have made the following med changes... Weaned Dilantin. Added Vimpat. Weaned Vimpat. Reintroduced Dilantin. Weaned Depakote. Weaned Dilantin. Added ACTH. Weaned ACTH. Added Prednisone. Added Zonegran. Weaned Prednisone. Added Vigabatrin.
So, currently, she is on 225mg of Zonegran at night and 500mg of Vigabatrin twice a day.
She is tired. She is very wobbly. She is not talking as much.
She is only having one small, very mild cluster in the early morning.
We are waiting to increase Vigabtrin in hopes that some of the side effects will subside. We may have to decrease the Zonegran. And I hope with every last ounce of my being that Vigabatrin will work. Because the next option is to seriously consider surgery. And something as simple as putting on her backpack will no longer be simple. And I cannot bear to go there.
