As of last night, Jade is no longer taking any anti-seizure medications. It's the first time she's been drug-free for over eighteen months. The last time we did a wean, we expected and saw some withdrawal symptoms. It wasn't surprising considering she'd been on an addictive drug for such a long time. This time, things went much more smoothly.
Every time we've reduced her medications, she's become brighter. There's always a risk that the medication was actually doing something. I have long suspected that it was having a paradoxical effect.
Now we wait and see.
