Caring for an individual with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome is different for everyone, as each individual with LGS is unique. At Daneswood, we advocate with the individual’s circle of support (family, friends, health care professionals) on a wide range of therapeutic, educational and social needs.
Unfortunately, treatment of Lennox-Gastaut syndrome is very difficult. The drugs which may be effective in some cases include sodium valproate, lamotrigine, topiramate, clobazam and phenytoin.
In individuals who have repeated drop attacks, surgery may be helpful. Corpus Callostomy and Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) are two surgical procedures that may be considered.
