Re: Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy
I think that is right that there is not a cure. JME is one that usually responds fairly well to treatment, however. It often responds well to Depakote. My daughter may have this, is being treated with Zonegran instead. Hers is not clear case for it so we do not have the DX yet. (she has myoclonics with pretty good control, a few atonics, possible absence and a few nocturnals.)
Her myoclonic jerks do not fit the pattern for JME, they are not first thing in the morning usually....
