Thank you for posting your query.
and levipil are anti-epileptic medications, and are used to prevent epilepsy
In this case, if your father never had epilepsy, he may not require the medications.
However, if he had fits
can lead to fits), then anti-epileptic medicines are required.
Also, I am not sure why tegretol is being changed to levipil. There are only two reasons to change an anti-epileptic drug-1. If fits are not controlled, or 2. If there are side effects with the drug.
If he has no fits and there are no side effects, you can still continue tegretol.
