Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your child's history and current medications.

For his weight, the dose of Frisium can be made 10 mg twice daily. If there are more seizures, then after at least one week duration, the dose of Frisium can be made 20 mg twice daily.

Best wishes,
