Hi Jinky, Thanks for the question
From your description it seems like you have general tonic clonic seizure (GTCs). But, multiple seizure types can co-exist. The medication selection for seizure control depends on type of seizure, frequency of seizure, findings on EEG, CT or MRI etc. Thesedays many newer drugs have come up for control of seizures, Phenobarbitone is an older drug, less frequently used these days and this drug has side effect of decreased memory, increased sedation, and some other mental symptoms. In addition, if seizures are frequent, long lasting that also can cause mental symptoms that you have. Broad spectrum anti epileptic agent might help you. You may need do EEG, and neuroimaging and consult a neurologist for seizure control. Your mental symptoms are likely to be better with the use of newer Broad spectrum anti epileptic agent, cognitive remediation, consulting a psychiatrist, counselling. You can consult at NIMHANS ,Bangalore. ‘Hope I have answered your query, “Wish you Good Health and speedy recovery
