Travolta's lawyers: Jett's anti-seizure meds stopped working

According to John Travolta's lawyers who have been getting the word out via TMZ, his son, Jett, had been taking an anti-seizure drug called Depokate "for several years."

Johntravoltajett They say the reports that Travolta refused to give his son anti-seizure meds because of his Scientology
beliefs
are simply and patently not true.



Jett had been having seizures on an average of every four days, until he started taking Depokate.

Lawyers Michael Ossi and Michael McDermott say the drug initially worked, reducing the seizure frequencies to approximately once every three weeks.



Eventually, the drug lost its effectiveness, according to Ossi and McDermott, who say "it began to cause serious physical damage," including damage to Jett's liver.

And because Jett was back to having at least one seizure every four days, Travolta and Preston, after consulting neurosurgeons, stopped giving him the drug. It's not conclusive whether the seizures caused a fall and the subsequent head injury.

Are there no other anti-seizure medications on the market?

Just asking because someone is bound to ask soon.
