Thank you for posting your query.Fits
can be brought under good control with medications in most patients (about 70-80%), in the rest, surgery may be required.
Carbatol and lacoset are good medications to control fits and seizures, and should be continued. The side effect of leg weakness is not due to these drugs.
He would require anti-seizure medications for whole life, as the brain damage
resulting in fits are likely to remain throughout life.
In addition, please do active physiotherapy
to improve the leg function.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
