Good evening, thanks for the question
The selection of anticonvulsant drugs for the treatment of epilepsy is based on several factors, including:
1. Seizure type
2. Frequency of seizures
5. Other medical conditions that accompany
A routine evaluation of epilepsy treatment by a doctor needs to be done given the side effects of the drug and also the therapeutic effect of the drug which can vary from patient to patient. If with the current treatment of seizure complaints can not be controlled, then the treatment needs to be evaluated, whether it is necessary to increase the dose or change the type of anti-convulsant drugs while minimizing the side effects that may arise. After 2-3 years do not experience seizures again so the doctor can begin to reduce the dose of the drug slowly.
In addition, consider also the factors that can trigger seizures again. It's best to avoid eating late, being exposed to blistering air, consuming alcohol, lack of sleep, or excessive stress. Routinely consult your condition with a neurologist while still undergoing epilepsy treatment for evaluation of future treatment.
That's all, hope you can help.
