Dear Friend,

Thanks for the query.

I am unsure of the reason for the above medications - it is not very clear in your query. I presume it is for convulsion / seizure. Presuming it to be for convulsion, I think
1. You need to get MRI brain with epilepsy protocol done.
2. You may increase the dosage of eptoin after discussing with your treating doctor. If I were to be your treating doctor, I would suggest 100mg three times a day. After taking it in this dose for a week you can get serum eptoin levels checked in blood. The dose can be managed as per the test.

Hope I answered your query. Discuss these options with your treating doctor. I will be available to answer if you have any other concerns.

Dr Vineet
