Thanks for the query,

I understand your problem

Before I respond to your question,let me tell you that the management of epilepsy depends upon the cause and the type of epilepsy. The type of epilepsy that your father has will respond better to medications like carbamazepine, Oxcarbazepine rather than Valproate. The gliotic changes in the left frontal lobe is responsible for the epilepsy. You may consult a local Epilepsy specialist for the opinion.

Hope this clarifies
Best wishes
