: So sorry to hear about your son Jacob. My son and daughter both hae seizures and we/ve done alot of hospital stays too! Nick is autistic and Julia is very delayed. Have they checked your son's urine for metabolites? Many types of bacteria can cause mental illness symptoms and behavior as severe as your son's. Dr. Paul Hardy in Hingham, Massachusetts. (information can give you his number) specializes in autism, treats epilepsy, and is THE expert is neuropsychologically behavioral disorders. He sees kids from all over the world is is just awesome. A big guy with a huge heart and an incredible wealth of knowledge. He is one of our doctors, I;ve seen him lecture, heard many case studies. He is remarkable. I pray for you and your child.Get a complete workupfor him. Blood, urine, stool, EEG, and by the way, depakote can cause irritablity and behavior changes. My daughter can not tolerate more than 125mg am and pm. She becomes toxic, shakes, very irritable, mood changes. It offers her little seizure protection. We use topomax with Depokote for good coverage. But lately, topomax has caused weight lose in both of my kids. We are changing to a new secondary med.Dr. Hardy can provide all the testing you could ever dream of. He looks for biological, chemical causes first. Medications second. He is a brilliant man when it comes to choosing medication. Best of Luck, Lynda
