Hello razeem.rtr
Welcome to Health Care Magic

History of fainting two times and EEG reports of primary generalized electrical discharge or generalized epilepsy suggest an epileptic disorder.
Epilepsy is a disorder in which due to abnormal electrical discharge of brain, seizures or fits occurs and loss of consciousness is also seen in some people. Any single episode of epilepsy should not be ignored and treatment is to be started. It is treatable if medicines are taken properly and with advise of doctor. You have to take medicines for long at least 3 years, don't miss the doses of medicine.

epilex chrono 300 is Valporate sodium, it is a good anti epileptic drug and is a safe drug.
Side effects like Nauses, vomiting may be observed during start of therapy. Other side effects are alopecia in some people, thrombocytopenia, dizziness, poor appetite etc. are observed only rarely.

Hope I cleared your doubt.
