My 16 yr.old son had 2 grand mal seizures 4 days ago while on vacation. The first one took place while looking at elk and lasted about 5 minutes. The second one took place 1 and a half fours later at the hospital and lasted 45 seconds. He's on Dilantin 300mg at bedtime. He sleeps 12 to 14 hours after taking the meds and would sleep longer if I'd let him. His memory is not what it used to be. With school starting next week I'm worried about this and about his peers accepting this condition. Can anyone ease my mind?
