The advice from the doctor is right. You cannot afford to miss a single dose. Coming to long term affects of taking Eptoin, the benefits outweigh the risks.

Having said that I suggest to get Serum Eptoin levels once every 6 months. It also needs a follow up in 4 month with the same doctor to check the side effects.
