  • I think you should probably ask your daughter's paediatrician.

  • talk to the dr. for sure.

    my dd has a siezure disorder - but it isn't epilepsy - there are many different forms and triggers for seizures that only a doctor can diagnose.

  • i have epilepsy...a good doctor will tell you that there are many causes for seizures and there is no way to diagnose what actually caused hers. If her seizure was after the drug overdose than it is not likely she will develop epilepsy. Doctors will give you what they call one free seizure before they send you in for testing for epilepsy. all a seizure is is a miscommunication in the brain where the electrical signals are not being sent right.
