Pediatrician, Pulmonology 's  Response

I think your pediatrician has been right in starting Encorate because the EEG is definitely showing abnormality. It does not have any side effects as far as wheezing is concerned.Even if it is a seizure disorder CT scan can be normal.

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