Re: EEG results and Lamictal
I believe that if an EEG showed seizure activity before meds, it always will. The meds are just keeping the seizures from occuring. After I had my gran mal seizure 6 years ago, I had an EEG done and it came out showing seizure activity. About five years later, after being on seizure meds (Tegretol and Keppra for most of the time) for that whole time, my doctor sent me to Yale New Haven Hospital for more involved tests than I'd had before (PET scan, another one I can't remember the name of), plus another MRI and EEG. The EEG came out exactly as it had after I'd had my first gran mal seizure, even though I've been on meds. I do still get simple partial seizures a few times a month, but I believe that an EEG will always come back abnormal even when you're on meds (and someone can correct me if I'm wrong).
