Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Gardenal is a drug that controls seizures and not dissolve clots. I could have helped you more if you had posted the reports or the scan of the child.However if your baby is not convulsing any more and her scans are normal and she is feeding and behaving well...she should recover soon.However the medications will be continued for some time.A paediatric neurologist will be able to guide you better in this aspect.Hope this answers your query.Wishing your child a speedy recovery.Have a nice day.
