Logan began school again in mid-August, He jumped right in and began to make up for the time lost during Summer break. About this time the neurologist increased his Keppra dosage (anti-seizure med) and about a week later Logan began having panic attacks apparently due to a hypersensitivity he was experiencing with the sensation of touch. I don't know if the higher dose of Keppra allowed him to begin feeling things more normally or what exactly happened. All I know is that he didn't want to wear anything because it "moved". (He could feel his clothes moving against his skin, Probably the first time he ever noticed it) and was intensely frightened of loose hair and threads on clothing. Not knowing what to do, we immediately went back to the original dosage and the problem seemed to "go away" in a day or two. His obsessive/compulsiveness was really wearing us out especially at bedtime. He wouldn't go to sleep until he had sat on the toilet at least 4 times for a period of at least 20 mins each. In desperation, we took the doctor's advice and started him on a trial of Celexa. Within two weeks I noticed a small improvement, by the end of the month, no more obsession with the toilet! Every now and then he will want to go multiple times, but it's nothing like it was before. Much more normal behavior in regards to playing with toys and being less anxious about other kids has also been apparent. We will keep Logan on the medication until the new year and try taking him off of it to see what happens (if the Doctor agrees). We just want to be absolutely certain that Logan really needs to be on the medication. At present, he has met almost half the goals set for him in his IEP (individualized education plan) and the teachers and therapists are very pleased with his progress. He will be going to the Vanderbilt Childrens Development Center for psychological evaluation in December, I'll most more about that outcome in the Winter Update at the end of February.
Logan also has a younger sister. Teagan's page is here.
