My dad is 60 years old he had 5 strokes so far and two days ago he had a seizure. What should we do for him? The E.R. did not give him any medication.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Should treat this

Although seizures are not normally dangerous- these are things to consider: 1.
He should not drive (a seizure makes that dangerous) 2. He should use medication to prevent seizures, since he may have another one 3. stroke risk factors should be addressed A commonly used medicine for this scenario is levetiracetam (keppra)

In brief: See a neurologist

Seizure is a possible complication after strokes.
He will need to see a neurologist for further management.
