Hi Mohit,

Thank you for posting your query.

It is good to note that you have not had seizures for 17-18 years. Also, you have had adequate treatment for neurocysticercosis.

Your MRI and CT brain are also normal.

Based on these information, it is alright for you to stop taking eptoin.

Since you are taking a very small dose of 100 mg daily, you can stop eptoin straightaway.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
