My son wasn’t taken off his medicine! The Doctor left the decision up to us. My son did not want to go off his medication because he knows what the seizures do to him. Anyway, the Doctor said this was the best time to go off his medicine–just before he starts driving. If he has a seizure after he has his drivers license, he will lose his license for six months.

I suppose he’ll take Driver’s Ed this summer. So our decision to never go off the medication is now fairly permanent. He will be on his medicine for the rest of his life and he is okay with that. I am too.

I’m thankful that we have health insurance because otherwise I think his medicine costs around $400/month.
