    I have a 11 mo old son who is currently being treated with ACTH- today is day 7 of treatment. As of right now he has continued to have these spasms everyday. Our neurologist has informed us that this is the best treatment for infantile spasms for him to live a "normal" life. We were told that if the treatment works that the spasms should stop within 7-12 days after starting treatment. Have you already started treatment? I would love hearing from you -- you can always email me at madison_21502@yahoo.com
