Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

Your daughter is possibly suffering from epilepsy, which was triggered by fever.

Abnormal EEG is a favorable point for the diagnosis of epilepsy.

Encorate chrono (sodium valproate) is a good medication to prevent seizures in the future. The correct dose of encorate chrono is 15-60 mg per kg body weight.
