Hello doctor,

His age is 66 years (father). He had a brain hemorrhage two months back and an operation was held the next day itself. His left side upper and lower limbs are weak so physiotherapy is going on and improving day by day but on three weeks back he got fits and again twice this month. The intensity was high and lasted for five minutes. His medicines are phenytoin 100 mg Xarelto 10 mg for DVT in left leg Amlodipine 2.5 mg and yesterday Clobazam 10 mg at night started. What can we do to stop seizure and anxiety?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Seizures can occur following a brain hemorrhage. His current medications Phenytoin and Clobazam are anti-seizure medications. He needs to take these medications regularly without missing any doses. Sometimes two or more anti-seizure medications are required to prevent seizures. Wishing him a speedy recovery.

 

Thank you doctor,

If the seizure occurs again, then what all things we can do and also he is feeling anxious.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

If he develops seizures again then the dose of Phenytoin and/or Clobazam may have to be adjusted or a new drug may have to be added. Anxiety can be treated by discussing and explaining the patient. Sometimes anti-anxiety medications and a consultation with a psychiatrist may help.
