Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for asking from HCM.


I can understand your concern. Your nephew is having abnormal current like discharge from brain. These discharges cause sudden activation of whole muscles and lead to "seizures or fits or epilepsy".

Seizure is a medically treatable condition. But you must get his MRI brain done to rule out any lesion in brain. To control seizures, you can consult paediatrician or neurologist . He will start any of below medication according to his body weight

: Syrup VALPROATE 20-25mg/kg body weight in two divided dose
: Syrup PHENOBARBITONE 1-2mg/kg body weight

Usually valproate is sufficient to control it. You can start it after proper prescription. Before starting it, kindly get his platelets and liver function test done.

Hope it will help him. If still any doubt, do let me know.
Thanks. Take care
