Hello..
Welcome to health care magic forum.
Clot in the leg veins are common to have post pregnancy. Acitrom is a blood thinning medicine. It is a condition which requires treatment for 6 months along with compression stockings to prevent damage to your veins also to reduce swelling. Your PT/INR is normal now. You have to monitor PT/INR once a week it has to be between 2-3.5. Dosage of Acitrom to be adjusted accordingly. You can feed your baby, provided you give milk after 3 hours of taking tablet and check baby's PT/INR once in 3 weeks. Monitor baby's urine for blood.
You can continue your seizure medicines with consult of your neurologist. Seizure medicines do interact with Acitrom hence to be taken with caution.
You have to avoid Cabbage, Spinach,Peas, Ground nuts, Bone marrow and liver in your diet as they can thicken the blood even more.
For chest pain you have to talk to your doctor immediately as the blood clot might travel to your lung and cause breathing difficulty. You may require Chest X ray/ CT.

Hi, my mother 57 years old is suffering from epilepsy since her childhood days..previously she use to have frequent fits but gradually they have decreased. She is having oxetol 450mg since few years now. Recently she is diagnosed with low sodium levels and a general physician suggested that it is because of oxetol and advisrd to stop taking it. If you could please help with a replacement medicine for the same. Please help as the neurologist we used to consult has transferred to some other city and it is not possible for us to consult a new one and go for all the test again due yo financial constraint. She hasn t got any fits since September 2014 which is a great thing as previously it was 1c in a month or 1c in 2month or sometimes as frequent as twice in a month. Please help.

I try to give paracetamol immediately but sometimes it does not control. Cant i avoid these situations. who should i see - psychiatrist or neurologist. before i have taken her to psychiatrist and she is not comfortable asking them questions, so pls advice.
