My son started having spasms at 4.5 months of age. He was put on Sabril shortly thereafter and was seizure free for 3.5 weeks and then the spasms showed up again but they were milder, but lasted up to 15 minutes. We have since been uppping his dose per our Neuros suggestion. My son has had 3 EEG's done, two before the meds and one after and none of them showed the hypsarrhythmia. How many of you have kids that have had the spasms and have had fairly normal EEG's? From what I understand the hypsarrhythmia is the main contributing factor to the learning disabilities. I'm wondering if anyone has an older child who had similar symptoms and how they are doing now cognitively, and if they developed any learning disabilities from the spasms.
