Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Normally we give these seizure medication for a period of at least 2 years. Then we try to stop them and see. If there is a seizure recurrence we then continue the medication.

Please do not worry. Only thing required is you should give the medications carefully without interrupting them.

If you forget to give the medication then there could be seizure recurrence and problems.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
