I have just read read both of your post in a row so I will address the previous one first. I agree with Kathy - you sound very down at the moment and and you need to get help for that. Both Epilepsy and the medications can cause depression but you can get help. You have had a hard time of it obviously but there is light at the end tunnel. Having Epiepsy can suck - I know because I have it. Not being able to drive sucks - I know because I can't either. Being depressed sucks - I know because I have also suffered from depression.
But our lives are what we make them Ethan. Be proactive - go and seek the help you need. Make sure you are happy with your doctors and the advice they give. Do as much research as you can so you know what you are dealing with.
Now about the Atkins diet. I have also read that some recent research has shown that it is helping adults with Epilepsy. I think one of the University medical centres over there may have done a study on it. Do a Google search for Atkins Diet and Epilepsy and you should find the article I read. If you find more info on it, please let us all know.
Good luck to you Ethan, we are all with you.
