Thank you for posting your query.

I can understand your frustration, as your epilepsy is still not under good control even after more than ten years of anti-epileptic use.

You need evaluation to find out the type of epilepsy, so that the correct medicine can be used. Also, one has to use the correct dose.

Some people with epilepsy may require two or three different types of medicines for good control of seizures.

Best wishes,
