Doctor insights on:
I think I had a seizure, but I was fully functional, I could talk and everything but I have no clue why I was doing that?
Maybe correct: If you experienced a transient period of altered consciousness, with what sounds like a period of post-ictal confusion, it is possible that you experienced some transient brain dysfunction. Worthwhile to inform your doctor and pursue an evaluation, as this may well require therapeutic intervention. ...Read more

Due to seizure 23 months old baby talk, shout but meaningless. She ask mum mum not specifically me. All developments are ok. Is speech therapy effective?
Maybe. Can try it.: A seizure should not cause a problem (instead, some problem caused a seizure). There are known and unknown reasons a child can have developmental delays. Because many traits (normal and abnormal) are inherited, we sometimes see familial patterns for speech delays. Speech-language therapy can help some kids (in addition to parents talking and reading to the toddler at home), so it is worth trying. ...Read more

Be careful and follow up with your Neurologist for the seizures. ...Read more

Nembutal: Nembutal is a barbiturate that is actually indicated to control seizure disorders, in addition to the sedative effect prescribed for your teen. It does have idiosyncratic side effects on the cns, and can cause sg abnormalities, especially if your teen was using other meds or ingested alcohol. I presume the Nembutal was discontinued and something else rxd for sleep? If so, there should be no sequel. ...Read more
Can nembutal cause a positive EEG in a teenager who was talking the pills for sleepinf one pos EEG one neg. Dr said pill caused seizure. He was taking?
Nembutal: Yes. Nembutal contains a barbiturate and although these have been used for decades to treat seizure disorders, they can cause eeg changes and even evoke a seizure. It is best to switch to a non- barbiturate formulation, like dalmane (flurazepam). Having said that, the use of potentially addicting sleep medications in a child is problematic, and you may want to discuss alternatives, such as anti histamines. ...Read more

I tapered down off of 1 mg klonopin (clonazepam) a day over the course of a month; was on for 2 mos. Am I at risk for seizure while w/d'ing? I feel lousy.
Probably not: That is a slow taper and you weren't taking much. You will feel lousy. That is why these meds are abused because they make you feel good and stopping them makes you feel bad. This will get better. Exercise really helps and not having to take somehting that affects your thinking and coordination and is addicting is a very good thing. It gets better!! There are better treatments out there. See MD ...Read more
