Is driving risky while on treatment for epilepsy?
Avoid driving as it is risky
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Seizure frequency and control depends upon cause of seizure and medications.
In some seizures the episodes are well controlled on drugs but in other types chances of recurrence are common.
Is there any special type of seizure or syndrome diagnosed in your case?
When the seizures started, frequency and last seizure episode?
Driving is not advisable as it may risk your life and others if seizures occurs.
No clear cut legislation in our country at present.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further queries.

Avoid driving alone
It's not related to stress or driving skills. The real danger is recurrence of seizure while driving. It can happen any time.
With duration of treatment and adequate drugs the chances decreases.
In some countries there are law regarding driving and seizure patient.
