Hello dear and welcome to HCM,

In my opinion if you are getting attacks even tho they are slight by taking the previous medication you should shift to other medication with suits you and prevent you from attacks. It is very difficult to choose which medicine is best for you because your MRI and EEG are normal. We have to select a medicine by hit and trial method. Hope you will get relief from the new medicine.
