Cannibis treatment questions

Home > Groups > Epilepsy and Hemiplegia > Cannibis treatment questions
  • Hi, I am asking for my 18yr old nephew. He is diagnosed as epilepsy and left side hemiplegia. His seizures have gotten worse. They gave his mom two options. One of them being taking out a part of his brain that is showing too much activity that causes these siezures, yet they do t even know if it'll help. They also don't know what it will exactly affect when that part of the brain is removed. What will he lose? And that's the "best option"
    He's being prescribed a ton of new meds that are literally making him suicidal or leaving him in an almost vegetative state. I'm looking into cannibis oil. Where should I look? What should I be aware of? most importantly, WHAT am I looking for? Please help.

  • Hi: Darling, I have had seizures since I was a baby. If they are giving him a ton of drugs, then I would change doctors. Doctors do push drugs with many side effects. I took Depakote and got multiple cysts, enlarged liver and a kidney stone. Then on Keppra, which causes congested heart failure for only two months. I just told my doctor I REFUSE TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE.
    NOW, I am on the OLD (1914) drug called Phenobarbital, which helps seizures. YES, the Cannabis Oil is good, in fact I have some but have not tried it yet. Knowing you are having a major issue, I do know that they are offering Laser Surgery to help Epilepsy instead of major cutting the head. Also, there is a nerve in the brain that can be controlled with a special device that you wear, similar to a pain pump. I would contact the National Institute of Neurological Disorders & Stroke-Ms. Amy Adams, adamsamy@mail.nih.gov or phone 301-435-0110. Also call the Epilepsy Foundation in your State or the headquarters in Maryland. I am Rita at rvmcdonald@icloud.com
