Vitamins are good for you!
Trying to navigate our way through the whole medical profession at the moment. I spoke to a Dr at the hospital who was calling me back to talk about Sheena's medication and dosage.
To cut a very long story short, he agreed with me that we should put her on Vitamin B6. What the??? I had to call them to tell them that I think she needs this vitamin that is on every Google search for Infantile Spasms. Do Dr's expect parents to have access to the internet these days? How frustrating. For some kids, B6 is all they need to control the seizures. She should have been on this stuff weeks ago, especially when there are no side effects...
I know Dr's are doing their best, but still. If she had a broken leg, they'd use everything at their disposal to get it fixed, why not this?
