my daughter has spastic quad cp...she had seizures at birth. they determined it was a vitamin b6 deficiency and we had to give her pyrodoxine for the first 6 months of her life, hoping her body would, by then, produce it on her own. it did. she'll be 21 on monday and not a seizure since.

best of luck to you...let me know how you make out with this.

Hi there

I also have a 7 year old spastic triplegic who had infantile spasms as a wee one then seizure free for about 3 years and has started having seizures again, roughly every 6 months a big one, with vomiting also. EEG shows focal abnormalities. Recently he has had abnormal eye flickering rhythmically for about 6 times in about 5 seconds but they dont really seem to bother him. We have had to start epilepsy medication again. I was told that it is common for kids with CP who have had seizures before to go on and develop another "bout" of them for a few years, every so often. Vomiting is commonly a part of seizures we have worked out for us!
Hey all:
It has been a LONG time since I've been on the board, but I had a major question I am HOPING someone can tell me about. My son is 4 years old and has spastic diplegia diagnosed at 5 months old. They say he has mild CP, but I don't understand how they get to that conclusion because he still can't walk. Anyway getting to the point. My son had a seizure in November 2006, he was 2 years and 7 months old. It was a bad one and he had never had a siezure before this. He was sick with a very high fever and vomitted very badly. Of course they couldn't give me an answer as to why.

Yesterday, he had his second seizure after 2 years and 6 months from his first one. He had no fever, but he did throw up very badly. My son had started oral baclofen last Monday. He was only on 5 mg in the evening to start with. Tomorrow I a suppose to start him on 5 mg twice daily, once in the morning and again in the evening.

My question is, when I look back in his daily journals, the ONLY thing that has changed is he started the baclofen. Could the baclofen have caused the seizure and is there anyone else who's child or adult had a seizure due to the baclofen?

Anyway, sorry for bothering everyone and I hope this message gets to eveyone fast because I am really nervous in thinking the baclofen may have caused this seizure??

Take care and hope to hear from anyone!!!
From the info I have read, Baclofen can increase the propensity for seizures, which is why we shied away from it. Good luck with your decision, but maybe have a look at Baclofen on the net to see if you can gain any firther info.
God Bless
