please, if anyone can help or suggest something please respond.
I feel sorry for your child's condition.Symptoms are not related to medicines.Addition of other antiepileptic drugs like phenytoin,lamotrigene and sedatives will be helpful for controll of his night symptoms.
we have tried sleep medications in low dosages back in january. he only sleeps 2 - 3 hours per night, and right now im concerned more about his crying before falling asleep. i am at a loss as to what i can do to help him. its like he is crying in pain but went for physical last week and his pediatrician said after the exam it night be his medication or perhaps something happened to his brain during his last seizure. i was tempted to bring him to the er several times. do you suggest he go for an eeg or mri or cat scan? his last mri was in september 2007 after a grand mal.
thank you for any information u may be able to give.
If you suspect that he had any form of trauma during seizure attack then its better to go for CT/MRI brain.You can consult your pediatrician for adding of phenytoin or phenobarbitone.
