Anticonvulsants for Cerebral Palsy
Many children who suffer from cerebral palsy may face a range of different chronic health problems that can have a major impact on their life. In particular, many people with cerebral palsy frequently have convulsions due to the way their brain sends signals to the rest of the body. These convulsions can have painful consequences and may leave a child feeling disoriented and confused. One way to address these concerns is to take anticonvulsants.
If your family has expenses, such as regular drug prescriptions to fill and the cost of additional treatments due to cerebral palsy, related to cerebral palsy caused by a doctor or nurse’s negligence, we may be able to help file for financial compensation. To learn more about this process and how we may be able to assist you, contact a cerebral palsy attorney of the Driscoll Firm, today at (800) 305-9800.
The Effects of Anticonvulsants
For many children suffering from cerebral palsy related seizures, the benefits of anticonvulsants can make this medication a practical necessity. These drugs can have some of the following effects:
- Easing overwhelming electrical signals that often cause seizures
- Reducing the severity of seizures
- Reducing the frequency of seizures
While there can be a number of advantages of these drugs, like most other prescription medicines, they do have some side effects; thus, it is essential to discuss the effects these types of medications can have on your child before giving them the drug.
The cost of expensive medication and secondary treatments to reduce injuries and suffering caused by a convulsion can seriously damage a family’s household finances. However, we may be able to help by potentially pursuing financial assistance through a lawsuit. To discuss this option in further detail with an attorney, contact a cerebral palsy lawyer of the Driscoll Firm, at (800) 305-9800 today.
