Epilepsy ? Posted By AKHIL Date : 17-Sep-07
My son is 10+ yrs old. 2 yrs back in school assly he felt giddiness and same thing happenned 3 months back. Further On 4th aug'2007 after dinner he complained giddiness and on 28th aug'2007 after coming from the park in evening he complained of giddiness and breathlessness. He felt stars coming before eyes and some black spots. EEG reflect generalized seizure disorder.We consulted 3 neurologists.one said its benign roldiac epilepsy and no active treatment required at present. Other one asked for a CT scan.Third one said to repeat EEG with fixation sensitivity with 2 minutes of eye closed followed by 5 seconds of eye opening twice during EEG and prescribed Zen retard 200mg 1 tab BD for 3 months with starting dose as 0-0-1/2 2 days, 1/2-0-1/2 2days, 1/2-0-1 2days, 1-0-1 3 months. Pl. suggest what should I do ?
