As mentioned by you that there are no new symptoms than the medicine should be continued for some time as per the neurologist opinion.

Also one should be aware that any haemorrhage happened in the past shouldn't be taken lightly and utmost care has to be taken.

It is good to hear that the kid is doing all good without any major symptoms.

Since Eptoin is an anticonvulsant medicine it has to be decided by the physical examination of the neurologist and if any convulsions do not appear than the neurologist may stop the medicine at the earliest.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, I’m Seema, having two and half year old son who is suffering from right brain hemorrhage since from one month old baby. Here is the detailed scenario, When my son was one month old baby, suddenly he fell ill and after radiological examination the doctor said that he is having sub dural hemorrhage with intraventricular extension (right brain hemorrhage),during that period he got convulsions. Convulsions were controlled with phenytoin, gardenal and midazolam drip. In the medical report they have mentioned, Final diagnosis: intracranial hemorrhage secondary to late hemorrhagic of new born. Then he recovered, during discharge they suggested to give EPTOIN medicine 2.5ml (morning and night). We continued giving him Eptoin syrup and he grown with normal behavior. We consulted famous pediatric neurologist in India name Dr.Kumaresan MD, DCH, DM, he suggested us to do MRI scanning when my son was 7 months old. In the scanning report they have mentioned, Observation: significant atrophy involving right temporal, parietal, occipital lobes with dilatation of right lateral ventricle He also suggested continuing with Eptoin syrup and visiting him once in 6 months. Then when he was one and half year old we did EEG for him, The report suggested that, Conclusion: EEG is mildly abnormal and the findings suggest frontal parietal dysfunction only. But my kid activity was very normal as like other children. Once again we consulted doctor before coming to Beijing, he suggested the same Eptoin syrup morning 2.5 ml and night 5 ml and folic acid tablet once in three days in night. Currently my son is two and half year old, he is doing very normal activity. But last month suddenly he fell sick and he got fever of 102 F and he got seizure(he turned his neck left side and hold his left arm aside)for about 10 secs, after that he went sleep for 5 minutes and then woke and he was normal. Quickly we ran to hospital and consulted doctor. Doctor said that he is having some ear infection so he had fever they gave fever medicine and antibiotic. Now he is fine doing well. So we here i would like to know wehther we have to consult pediatric neurologist in Beijing as of now???? Please help me on this. Thank u in advance. Seema
