Community happy with passage of anti-seizure medication

The passage of a new epilepsy bill has many people in the Orange County area excited and relieved. The new bill means states that non-medical personnel, such as teachers, can now administer an anti-seizure medication to students.

The new law will go into effect on Jan. 1 and will counter act a bill that was passed in 2009 that stated that non-medical personnel should not administer this drug and that nurses should not teach them how to do so.

Although nursing unions are not happy with the decision, the bill was signed on Oct. 7 by the governor. The new bill will offer training to teachers in order to administer the medication. Parents who have children with epilepsy are allowed to request a training at their school. Epilepsy advocates have said that surgeries that are not stopped with this medication may result in brain damage or death.

Recenlty, another antiseizure medication, Depakote, has also been in the news because it has been linked to multiple birth defects when taken during pregnancy. If this has happened to you or a loved one, contact the Depakote lawsuit lawyers by calling 800-761-3187 today and discussing your legal options.
