4 years old diagnosed with myoclonic seizures. Reason for puking?

My 4 yr old was just diagnosed with myoclonic seizures. Last week he puked for two days and wouldn t eat for the following three days. Then finally the next day he acted as if he was starving and cried to get something to eat. When he ate he wanted more. If I gave him something he didn t like he would cry and scream at me. Even hit me a couple of times. Is this due to the medicine or some virus?

hi brittanyclodfelter ,
I Have read your Question,

Myoclonic seizures is a case where generally doctors prescribe a medicine known as sodium valproate (since you have not mentioned the drug prescribed , Iam assuming it could be sodium valproate), The medicine is suitable for everyone and it could show a few side effects like , diarrhea, vomiting, aggression and behvioural changes as you mentioned above,
but sometimes empty stomach , the constant vomiting could also be the reason for irritation as you stated.
My suggestion is to consult your Physician or neurologist immediately for the further advice.

Wishing your son a good health,
Dr.G.Gayatri Devi
