My daughter is 2 years old now, 10kg of weight. His first seizure came when she was 9 months. Her first medication was Depakene, but since she got other seizures, she has been given until maximum doses of Depakene (2x5ml) also added with Keppra(125mg) but seizures still happened.
We tried other medication with tegretol (2x125mg) and Keppra(2x125mg), but my daughter's heart beats so hard and she got fever and she walked like a drunk-person. Then we stop Tegretol. Now she got Luminal(2x25mg) and Keppra(2x125 mg), but seizures still come. Also, now she had itchy neck, bad appetite and sometimes snoring while sleeping.
My questions :
- Now, my daughter had seizure more frequent.And sometimes she got seizure when awake. Previously she only got seizure while sleeping.
- Does loss of awareness, stiff body considered as seizures ? Her EEG told that she had abnormal signs. If her body got stiff, loss of awareness, we will give stesolid to her. Should we wait until her body starting to got tonic-clonic phase or stiff body and loss of awareness can be considered as seizure? Stiff body happened in a very short time 5-10 seconds.
- Is it safe to give Keppra for kids under 4 years. I read in http://bit.ly/wPFwIX, Keppra should be used at least for 4 years old child.
