Dear friend ,
There is no point changing antiepileptic medication frequently,
First of all why you had these seizures ,cause need to be accertained with MRI Brain with Epilepsy protocoll probably venous angioma may be the cause,Next you need to get levels of antiepileptic drugs checked in your sons blood,because there is no fun in having three drugs with all of them having low levels in your blood cause that will not control the seizures. Also multiple drug intake also causes decreased serum level of these drugs. Medicines are not to be stopped suddenly or without doctors advice
