Why does twitching persist in infant after taking nexium and keppra?



HELLO DOC, I VE BEEN HAVING SOME CONCERNS ABOUT MY 2 MONTH OLD BABY. WHEN SHE TWITCHES SHE SUCKS IN AIR OR SOMETIME SMACKS HER LIPS...I HAVE BEEN TAKING HER TO THE DOCTOR HER BUT ALL THEY KEEP TELLING ME IT MAYBES. SHE DOES HAS ACID REFLUX AND THEY DID SEE SOME SEIZURE ACTIVITY ON THE EEG...SHE IS TAKING NEXIUM TWICE A DAY AND SHE IS TAKING KEPPRA. MY QUESTION IS IF SHE S TAKING ALL HER MEDS THE RIGHTWAY WHY AM I STILL HAVING THE SAME PROBLEMS???

Answers :

Dr. Muath Alshrouf | Pediatrician
there is a lot of movements that mimic a seizure in infant one of the causes is gastroesopheal reflux , nexium alone is not helpful, you should add to that AR formula ( anti reflux ) or thinking the regular formula with starch again , a video of these movements is very helpful to distinguish seizure from reflux if this is true seizure , Keppra will need about 3 weeks to work I hope this helps with the answer
