Thank you for contacting Healthcare Magic.
Your daughter is suffering from complex partial seizures (a type of epilepsy
), as per the description you have given.
Treatment for epilepsy is long-term and the medicines need to be continued for at least 3-5 years and in some cases, even lifelong. However, improvement is seen within a few weeks of starting treatment.
It may be reassuring to know that a person with epilepsy can have totally normal life, including education, job and married life.
The choice of drug to control epilepsy depends on the efficacy and side effect profile in the patient. All medicines that you have mentioned such as ZEPTOL
CR, LEVERA and VALPARIN are good drugs. Please follow the advice of your neurologist
regarding the choice of drug and its dose.
