Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

Levera contains Levetiracetam and Desval er contains divalproex sodium. Both of these are good antiepileptics. But if the frequency of antiepileptic drugs has increased to 15 days then it means that either the dose of the drug Levera has to be increased or some other antiepileptic needs to be added.

I suggest you to consult a neurologist and get an EEG and MRI brain done.

You can get carbamazepine or Clonazepam prescribed. Clonazepam belongs to benzodiazepines which are used as anti-seizure drugs, sedatives, tranquilizers and muscle relaxants. Valproic acid or lamotrigine can also be prescribed. But these should be used under medical supervision.

Hope this answers your query.

Hello,

Thanks for writing back.

There is no relation between high blood sugar and epilepsy. However you should ensure a good glycemic control by uptitrating the dose of anti diabetic medications that you are taking after consulting your physician. Low blood sugar can precipitate seizures.

Hope this answers your query.
