Not necessisarily

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I am medical doctor, an associate in Department of Pediatrics, working with an experienced Pediatrician . I answer on his behalf.

No, taking Frisium (Clobazam) is not necessary in a child with febrile seizures. The main motive should be in avoiding high temperature and control the temperature in any infection with techniques like Tepid sponging and or paracetamol.

Hope, I answered your query.
