Has puberty increased your child with Autism's frequency of seizures?
Stephen has had a huge increase in seizures in the last 6 months. He was having one or two breakthrough seizures a year since he was diagnosed 3 years ago and he has had about 6 in the past year. He just started puberty in June. He has had 3 since June. Has anyone else had this happen with their child once they hit puberty? Is it a phase? Could it be that he needs a new medication? For now we are increasing his night time dose to 4 pills and will get his levels done in two weeks.
