What to do for poorly controlled complex partial seizures?
Q: I have been suffering from poorly controlled complex partial seizures for the past 24 years and was evaluated ay NIMHANS, Bangalore. According to them my CT Scan and MRI are normal. However the EEG and detailed physiological tests revealed right temporal lobe dysfunction. I am under medication as below. Tab. Frezium 10 mg (1.5-0-2); Tab. Tegretal CR 400 mg (1-0-1); Tab. Revotril 2 mg (0-0-1). The doctors have ruled out surgery. I shall be grateful to have your expert evaluation.
A:Another attempt should be made to know the cause of your seizures. The currently available technology can identify the abnormality even if the previous investigations have not been helpful. I will be glad to have a look at you and your previous investigations and plan out a set of new investigations to try and find out the cause of your seizures. Once we are able to do that, I am hopeful that we should be able to plan out a treatment schedule for you and your seizure control should be better.
