Simple Febrile Seizure
2 months back, my daughter got gastroenteritis and her temperature reached 104. During this time, she experienced a simple febrile seizure, during which she did not respond for almost a minute and passed urine. But after that she was perfectly fine. Her pediatrician has prescribed her Frisium 5mg 1/2 -0-1 whenever she gets fever for 3 days. Last week she got fever due to viral infection and we started giving her Frisium along with paracetamol. Need your advice in understanding if this dosage of Frisium is ok for 2.5 year old weighing 14 kgs. Also is there any side effect on giving this tablet. After I stopped this tablet, I observed she had some very short involuntary movement in her fingers and hand when she was asleep. Need to understand if this is common in kids or should I be concerned on this or am I extra cautious in observing her now. I am really worried. Please help. She is normal in her development and is also very intelligent and learns quickly.
