    Hi, thanks for the program. My name is David from Uganda and my kid has been experiencing seizures since 2010 and is now 10. Neurologists have tried with medications and he is now on Carbarmazephine 600mg/day and epillium sodium volproate 600mg/day. He stopped salivating but continues to experience seizures only whenever he falls asleep.
    Please advise, if you can.
    Many thanks.
