Thank you for posting your query.

Epilepsy is a treatable disease, when one uses the correct medications.

One has to determine the type of epilepsy, as the choice of medicine depends on that. This can be done on the basis of description of epileptic attack, EEG and MRI Bain findings.

Your neurologist would be able to start your daughter on the appropriate medications.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
