Comment: Trust your neurologist.

(See in situ)


Trust your neurologist.

The internet is filled with terrible medical advice, especially in the popular Google searches, where many quacks have found an audience. Don't let the alarmists frighten you with plausible-sounding populist fear mongering against doctors and pharmaceutical drugs. Pharmacology, neurology, and immunology are complicated topics and often confusing for many in the general public, and quacks take advantage of this.

There is no reason to distrust the neurologist, who spent decades studying and practicing medicine, or oxcarbazepine (which is not even patent protected).

Febrile seizures are common in toddlers, but 40 minutes is a long time. Trust what the neurologist tells you to do.
