Dear Doctor,
Neurologist advised us to give him 7.5ml of valance solution from yesterday. He got mild tremors twice. His RT hand shivered for while he was holding a toy.

My questions are:
1. Is this because of Valence? Is it a side effect?
2.Should I take him to neurologist immediately?

Relax,there is nothing to need to consult

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to us.

I understand your concern.

As mentioned by you ,your child is having seizures which are not under control

for which neurologist has added valproic acid.which is a standard anti epileptic

medicine .

There are some dose related side effects and tremors is one of them.

You need not to worry as these effects will gradually subside in few days.

But in case these persist I suggest you get him re examined by your doctor.

Hope I have answered your query,if you have any further query I would be glad to help.

Wishing your child good health.

God bless..
