Does anyone have experience of these and if so what age is there child,did they stop as they grew older ?
My doctor is recommending phenobarbital for her to prevent them, am concerned to give her but dont want her to keep having them obviously. Less than 12 months she had 4 but less than a minute each so apparantley not the serious type!|
sdadkin responded:
I don't really have any experience with them but when my brother was 2 he had one. He never had another one after that and he is 22 years old now. They are pretty scary. I hope you never have to experience another one with your child!
