My nephew 17 years old weighing 70 kgs has been on zenoxa 300 and last week he had a very mild seizure for about 1 minute and doctor increased dose to 600. He said it is due to weight the strength has been increased. Is it the only reason.

Yes 300 mg is very low dose. So, dose has been increased. If still seizures recur then dose has to be increased further or another drug has to be added.

Treatment for infantile hemangiomas should be individualized depending upon the size, location, presence of complications, potential for scarring, the age of the patient, the rate of growth or involution at the time of evaluation, the potential risks and benefits of treatment. Treatment is usually required for complicated hemangiomas that may interfere with a vital structure or function and for lesions at increased risk of ulceration, scarring, and disfigurement. Masterly active nonintervention for uncomplicated hemangiomas that are not disfiguring. Active nonintervention requires regular monitoring of the lesion. Some have tried topical beta blocker like timol for anxious parents, who respond but stopping the treatment may have some rebound effect. Oral propranolol is the first-line agent for the treatment of complicated hemangiomas with the potential to impair function or cause disfigurement eg, periorbital hemangiomas. Systemic steroids, vincristine, and interferon alfa are alternative agents for aggressive hemangiomas but are rarely needed since the advent of propranolol. Children with periorbital hemangiomas should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist. Oral propranolol in addition to dressings and appropriate painkillers for the treatment of ulcerated hemangiomas that may cause permanent disfigurement, interfere with daily life activities, or do not respond to dressings. If you want to discuss this further, feel free to contact me directly.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user You should consult a Neurosurgeon immediately. The symptoms you are telling suggest that he might be having spinal cord compression due to something. An MRI Cervical spine needs to be done urgently to look for the cause.

4 Most Common Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorder is a serious problem which a large number of people are facing due to multiple reasons. Almost every other person complains of having some sort of sleep disorder, irrespective of his/her age. Sleep disorders may come across as something which can be overlooked, but this shouldn’t be the case, as when the problem aggravates it can take quite a scary turn. You need to be aware of the different kinds of sleep disorders which affect a vast number of people, on a daily basis. Given below are some of the most common ones which affect the majority of the crowd.

1. Insomnia
Insomnia, a worldwide epidemic, is the most common type of sleep disorder today. A number of factors can cause insomnia and affect even the healthiest being. From stress, anxiety or depression, substance and alcohol abuse to certain types of medication, a lot of factors can cause this issue. People who have insomnia have difficulty in sleeping and then maintaining that sleep. A cognitive behavioral therapy can help people suffering from this disorder. Often medications are also prescribed.

2. Sleep Apnea
If you have a partial or complete blockage of the throat then, you might be suffering from sleep apnea. This disorder is the second most prevailing sleep disorder in the world today. People who suffer from this disorder hardly realize it until someone informs them about having the trouble. Some of the common symptoms of Sleep apnea are morning headaches, daytime sleepiness, and excessively loud snoring as well. People suffering from apnea may also face trouble breathing multiple times per night. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machine is a common treatment for this disorder.

3. RLS or Restless Leg Syndrome
The real reason behind RLS is still not known by experts, however, most believe the real cause of the disorder is hereditary. Some medications can also be a cause of restless leg syndrome. In this disorder, an urge to move your legs and hands precedes the need to sleep. RLS usually occurs when the patient is resting. In order to treat the restless leg syndrome, one must reduce the consumption of alcohol and caffeine along with doing regular exercises. For more severe cases, often medications are prescribed. RLS is observed more in women than in men.

4. Narcolepsy
People with narcolepsy often complain about falling asleep during odd times and feeling weak quite often. An abnormality in the brain is usually the reason behind this sleep disorder. Patients of narcolepsy often develop cataplexy which is a condition where patients feel faintish as an emotional reaction to any situation. People suffering from narcolepsy are given medications as a treatment.
