Thanks so much!
Sorry, I don't know of anyone that has a VNS and has had success. I do remember meeting someone at one of my epilepsy conferences and he had to have his removed as he had many problems caused by the VNS...I don't remember exactly what the problems were as it was several yrs. ago.
Hopefully, someone comes across this post with a success story!
You should talk to your Dr. about the increased seizures.
Have you had any luck with anti-seizure medications?
