Thanks for the query,

I have noted your problem.

You have seizures related to a lesion in the right frontal lobe

With respect to your physician, i beg to differ in the management of your case. You may opt either Oxetol and Eptoin NOT BOTH. These two medications given together may not benefit much to a patient. In fact, the side effects will be more. Your dose of one of the medicine should be optimized as per the body weight. If Eptoin is opted, better get a serum eptoin level done and then increase the dose.
I urge you to see a local Epileptologist (specialist in Epilepsy) who will guide you better.

Best wishes
