Thank you for posting your query.
is a chronic disease and requires long-term treatment.
You are currently taking three medications. For best seizure
control, two drugs are sufficient. More drugs (three or more) have been shown to increase the side effects, without necessarily increasing the seizure control.
So, if your seizures are well controlled, then, in view of these side effects, one can think of removing one of the medicines. However, this should be done under the guidance of your neurologist
, and not on your own.
Please discuss this issue with your doctor.
Wishing you good health,
