Hello there. I can understand your concern. Its very unlikely that meftal would cause the seizures. The seizures could be due to the temperature. You need to get your fever treated properly. Take a paracetamol thrice a day after food. Also get yourself checked out by a neurologist for further evaluation and management of the seizure problem. Do not take it lightly. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.
