Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with vast experience in diagnosing & treating all neurological as well as all other health/medical conditions, and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns related to your son.

I am sorry to hear your son is having fever, I see he is on two seizure meds, and you have inquired what can be given to control his fever. As a Neurologist I am very familiar with the interactions of these two seizure meds with other meds, and I can certainly help you in this regard.

Please see fever meds such as Tylenol is fine to use along with seizure meds such as Lamotrigine and Briviact

These 3 drugs are not known to cause any significant or serious or major drug interactions when used together.

So Tylenol can certainly be used to control the fever while he is on the above mentioned two seizure meds, and it is safe to do so

Another option is to use Motrin to control the fever and this also can be used along with the two seizure meds he is currently on and no significant interactions are known to occur when motrin is used along with these two seizure meds

Once again to your main question, please see Tylenol or Motrin can be used along with the two seizure meds (Lamotrigine and Briviact) he is currently on to control his fever, and these are safe to use together.

Wishing your son a quick & complete recovery!

Wishing you guys all the very best!

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or if you want to discuss this further.

Assuring you the best services!

Best Regards!

Dr Subbanna MD

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
