3.5 yo son has seizures 2 times in a week

My son is 3.5 years old and 2 times in a week he is suddenly becoming like unconscious for 5 to 10 min and he is breathing with his mouth at that time. After 10 to 15 minutes he will sleep or he will be normal. We have done CT Scan & EEG also and the reports were normal. Our Doctors asked us to use Valparin syrup 5 ml every day night for 2 years. Pl suggest what is the remedy and precautions.

thank you for asking
you doctor is very right. use the medicines for 2 years non stop with full compliance. its good thing that seizures has not done any damage. keep the kid away from heights, fire, pools, any place where sudden unconsciousness can lead to fatal consequences. leave the wash room door open for him. prevent triggers like sleep deprivation etc. consult a pediatric neurologist for further patient education and guidance.visit our health center for further guidance.
take care
