I have a 20 yr old son who has had absence seizures since he was 13. He is on Valproic Acid, only 250 mg once per day. I want to

Posted by TreeofLife

He was announced as cured a few years ago, taken off of the medication, and they came back.  He was prescribed to take 250 mg twice a day, but found that once a day kept it under control. I have been reading lots of info about Omega 3 Fish Oil, and vitamin supplements. I am hoping that since his dosage is low, it may be easy to wean off and replace with natural solutions? I have seen him get depressed and withdraw, and am very concerned about hte long term effects this will have on him. I don't want him to have to live like that. I asked him today if he was opposed to finding an alternative, and he is open to it. Any help would be appreciated.
