My baby is 2 1/2 years old. He is severly developmentally delayed and has really no diagnoses yet. He has now had 5 seizures in 7 months. Doctor wants to put him on Klonopin. I am worried about the side effects. My son's seizures are different than any I've read about. He just does not respond, NO hypertension, just limp, dazed. But won't come out of it by himself. Have to go to the Emergency room, give him 2 ml of Valium and he comes out of it. Or if they wait too long, he starts twitching on one side. After everything is over, he is back to his normal self. Do I need to do seizure meds? Is there anyone who is experiencing anything like me?
