Hi Trace. There's a type of seizure caused by B6 deficiency so they are obviusly hoping. We tried it at first but DD turned out to have infantile spasms and B6 doesn't work for that. There's only 2 drugs that do.
B6 should work pretty quickly if thats the problem and they should doa B6 challenge while she's hooked upt o an EEG machine.
They given you any ideas yet?
