Customer Question
My 17 year old...

My 17 year old daughter has had diarreah for 14 days and during those 14 day she has had 2 seizures. The first one was 9 days ago and we called an ambulance because she had passed out and had then had the seizure they said she was dehydrated so they gave her fluids and sent her home think that was it. She had a second one two days ago while in bed. I went in to check on her and she was having it. We have her set up for a gastro doctor and a neurologist next week. She is one 20 mg paxil for depression, cingular and zyrtech for allergies and gets allergy shots.
