Dear Ms

Baby has both febrile and non-febrile seizures and your doctor is perhaps right in prescribing anti-seizure drugs. If baby's neurological examination is normal, these drugs, usually a single one, will be given for two years of seizure free period and then slowly tapered. Her development is likely to be normal if seizures are controlled.
