seizures getting once in 3months and that too stopped in 2 mins - for this you are giving 2 medications. thats enough. if there is brain damage- seizures do recur. some tips- treat fever with paracetamol or brufen syp ASAP. give timely diet- because low sugar may precipitate fits. avoid TV watching > 1hr. adequate sleep.
