Thank you for posting your query.
It is clear that you have to take additional medication, as your current drug (rivotril) has not controlled your seizures.
Regarding the choice of drug, I would prefer oxcarbazepine
. These medications are very effective for temporal lobe epilepsy
. In addition, they do not affect the memory, whereas, epilim (Sodium valproate
) can have adverse effects on memory.
