Brief Answer:
need more information

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your query.
I think I can help you.

However, I need a little more information.
First, what were the seizure types- What really happened to you? You may be unaware of the sequence of events- but onlookers and family/friends may know. So please let me know that.
Second. What is the medicine you are on? What dose? How regular are you?
Third, When did you have the seizure? Did you have any seizure after starting medicines? If yes, had you forgotten to take medicines prior to the seizure?
Fourth, when was the last seizure you had?
Fifth, your age?
Sixth, why do u want to take this medicine- musli power xtra?

Please respond in as many details as possible. The more information you give me the better.

Let me know the above information, and I may be able to help you further.
Best of luck, Dr Mittal

Brief Answer:
Best to restart after a delay

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the information.
I would like to have seen the MRI report. A clip of it was uploaded in the discharge summary.
Anyways, your medication for seizures should continue.
While I could not read the full report, it seemed to show some brain changes.
Usually that means that the seizure medicines should not stop.

As for XXXXXXX Power extra, there is no official work up on the information that you seek.
However, this medicine is known to increase circulation of blood.
Sometimes that may lead to seizure.

In my experience, the medicine has not caused seizures in most patients.
However, as I explained before, it may sometimes cause the seizure.
Therefore, as of now, I would suggest that you stop the medicine for the time being like 1 to 2 weeks.
Thereafter, you may start the medicine again.
Try to be at home after you restart the medicine for 2-3 days.
Thereafter it should be fine.

Best of luck, Dr Mittal

Brief Answer:
Suggestions

Detailed Answer:
So called ALLOPATHIC medicines that may help you are
Sildenafil,
testosterone replacement,
Alprostadil,
papaverine.
However, each one of them have their own effects and needs to be monitored.
So please do meet your physician before planning on either of them,especially since I don not know your full medical history, except seizures.
Best of luck,
Dr Mittal
