Brief Answer:
You can take the vaccine.

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your medical details about epilepsy and current medications.

You can safely take the Japanese encephalitis vaccine and there would not be any side effects due to your epilepsy or medications for it.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
