Thank you for posting your query.
is a chronic condition, and many people require medications for long time. Good thing is that the disease is well controllable with medications.
I agree that some people do get cured in 3-5 years, but also, it is not uncommon for fits
to recur after 5 years.
So, there is no need to worry. Fits can be kept under control with proper dose of anti-epileptic drugs.
