What is Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome?

Lennox-Gastaut syndrome is a form of epilepsy in children. It can be difficult to treat, and is characterized by multiple daily seizures of different types and the possibility of slowed development and behavior disorders.

Treatment for Lennox-Gastaut syndrome includes medication and surgical options. Anti-epileptics (diazepam gel, Lamictal, Felbatol) and benzodiazepines (Klonopin, Onfi) are some prescribed drug treatments.

    December 09, 2013

    The FDA recently posted a safety announcement that Onfi (clobazam)—a benzodiazepine used to treat seizures associated with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome—can cause serious and potentially fatal skin reactions.

    These reactions are rare, and you should not stop taking Onfi without talking to your healthcare provider; this can cause seizures or other serious withdrawal problems. However, you should stay aware and seek immediate medical treatment if you see any sign of a rash, blistering or peeling of the skin, sores in your mouth, or hives. See More
