How long has he been on the phenobarbitol? How long on the potassium bromide?
I week on both
he took the loading dose of KBr already
Ok. I'm very glad to hear that the medications have been doing well up to this point with the seizure control. As far as the pacing and panting, most definitely that could be a side effect of either drug and they body getting used to it. If it is due to them, then there is a very, very good chance that they will go away as he gets used to them.
I thought it was odd that was not doing the pacing and panting until recently after the loading dose
Is there a timeline when these side effects may subside?
I will be sure to do that, and Thank you for your time
