But after some time I was contact to another Doctor they advice us to continue only Valparin twice a day with 5ml.

Pediatrician 's  Response
Thanks for placing your query here.
I can appreciate your concerns.
The boy ssems to be having febrile fits.
Simple febrile seizure is a benign and common event in children between the ages of 6 and 60 months. Nearly all children have an excellent prognosis.
Gardenal has rightly been stopped.
Regarding valparin there is no unanimous opinion.(american academy of pediatrics not in favour)
Many doctors use only clobazam or diazepam intermittently (meaning with each episode of fever) with good results.
My personal practice has been not to use long term regular prophylaxis therapy with valparin & instead use clobazam for 3 days with each fever episode.
Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
