Detailed Answer:
Dear Chewy....
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
I have seen and treated lots of patients of epilepsy in my carrier.
There are good antiepileptic drugs in today's medicine.
Their efficacy depend on type of epilepsy like grand mal or petitmal or myoclonic. They have to be appropriately selected based on nature of disease.
All time tested drug for epilepsy are Valproate, Oxcarbazepine, Phenytoin and Levetiracetam to name a few.
I hope the advise will be helpful for you.

Brief Answer:
neurologist review advisable

Detailed Answer:
Hi...
Welcome back.
I think you need to get assessed by a local neurologist. It is unusual to have grand mal and myoclonus together.
Let the neurologist judge.
If really both then Valproate makes good choice. But you have to get checked if you are otherwise fit for this drug.
I hope the advise will be helpful for you.
