She should only take a medication with the permission of her Neurologist. Seizures that is undiagnosed reason, needs to be monitored closely. I would log in foods, times and what your child ate. Down to what vitamins they took. If she is on her period log that in too. Hormonal changes can do that too.
If she is only seeing a GP she needs a Neurologist as soon as possible.
If you need any more help from me you can contact me through this blog. site.

Sorry for your dauther's onset of seizures. Menstral cycles / hormone changes can create a lot of problems for those wilth low seizure thresholds. My daughter has been on a lot of different seizure medicines and is also asthmatic and has spring allergies. She has been able to take claritin, chloro-triplon, etc but it is certainly good to check with your neurologist and ask the druggist about interactions. Some seizure meds are quite "clean" and don't interfere but others and have a change in potency when mixed with other drugs.

... just take it when your allergies are acting up. is this true? Can you take the pills on the days that are bad, and not the days that are not bad

I'm still suffering from my allergies . I started taking Claritin 2 days ago. Does it need to "build up" in my system before it works ?
