Thank you for posting your query.
Based on your symptoms, you are suffering from myoclonic epilepsy
Epilim (sodium valproate
) and rivotril (clonazepam) are good medications to control myoclonic jerks. However, it should be given in the correct dose. The correct dose of epilim is upto 60 mg/kg body weight.
If your jerks are still uncontrolled with the best dose of epilim and rivotril, then, Keppra (levetiracetam
) tablets may be added.
Please discuss these with your neurologist
Wishing you good health,
