Dear Surendra,
Thanks for choosing Health Care Magic. I suggest you get a detailed evaluation including an EEG and MRI and consult a neurologist asap to know your treatment plan. Immediate onset seizures, those that occur immediately or in the first few hours after a brain injury, do not suggest a chronic seizure disorder. Early onset seizures and those which develop within the first 7-8 days after trauma require prophylaxis for up to one year.
Please get a detailed evaluation. Though Post traumatic seizures are thought to resolve on their own we should defenitely be looking at a detailed work up and evalution to manage the situation at hand.
Do let us know the results.
All the best
Regards

When I consulted to doctor this time he advised for EEG report in which generalized epilepsy found. They advised gardinal (5ml twice daily) and we started it. Due to relocation, we shifted to another city where we consulted another dr. who directed to gradually decrease gardinal and start valparin(3.5 ml twice daily) . Today on first dose of valparin (with 2.5 ml of gardinal as advised) he reported pain in stomach, became more aggressive. Dr. advised for 3 year regular treatment. Please advice me what is suitable for me and what are side effects of valparin. Are side effects permanent or for few days only. And Please tell me whether it will be cured in 3 years or will last whole life.
