My son is now 4, he started having febrile seizures
when he was 11 months old.. He suffered a total of 4 in 2 months!!
== they are common from 6 months to 6 years, when teh fever is rising it may get precipitated.
The last one he had, he stopped breathing and turned BLUE!!
=== thats more like a breath holding spell than a febrile seizure... usually breath holding spells are preceded by excess cry. very rarely do febrile seizure get this complication, it may be life threatening, you should have visited a doc.
The only thing that helped my son was fever management, he would get tylenol
now & motrin
in 3 hours.. That away he was dosed with another medicine before the first one could wear off..
=== thats fine. but donot continue mroe than 3-4 days unless a doctor recommended so.
ER doctors, a neurologist
, and my pediatrician
all said that tylenol is processed by your liver, and motrin is processed by your kidney
so there is no chance of overdose!!
==== nice justification, but safely you can give both medicines upto 3 times a day. At times i prefer a combination or mefenamic acid
