Hey guys! My little girl (7) was diagnosed with occipital benign epilepsy 2 years ago. And has just recently had her medication changed to a higher dose, because she's bigger now. On sept 1st, before her dosage was adjusted, she had 3 seizures in one day (which has never happened) the emergency med that was given to her on the ambulance by ems to stop her seizure caused her to stop breathing on her own, Valium. She had to be intubated which completely traumatized me for life. I thought I was about to lose my baby girl. She's perfectly fine now btw. But I just can't understand why that medicine did that to her... I've given her emergency meds before (diazapham) and it didn't harm her at all. Valium was given in her nose by ems and diazapham was given to her by me (rectal) at the beginning of the year and didn't cause any side effect at all. Can someone please tell me if they know anything about this??? Can any of you guys relate at all????
