> He seems very lethargic and sleeps alot. The doctor says that this will eventually subside as my son's body becomes used to the medications. In one month's time, the Neurontin will be weaned slowly to the point of being discontinued.

So it's both getting used to the medications and going off the Neurontin that are supposed to help with the lethargy? Neurontin can in fact be sedating, so that would make sense.

> Is the Carbatrol [carbamazepine] dose of 300 mg three times a day going to be a high enough dosage to help my son?

The dosage you can adjust by monitoring the level in his blood. Whether it's effective for him, however, there's only one way really to find out...

It's good to hear that he's made progress. Let us know what happens next. Good luck,
