Brief Answer:
Seizures can be related to pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
From the history it seems that your daughter had a seizure during pregnancy- may be related to high blood pressure. If her blood pressure now is normal and she has not had any seizure in last 6 months then the medication that she is taking now can be stopped gradually but she needs to consult a gynecologist or a neurologist with complete previous records.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Brief Answer:
Do consult a neurophysician.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
If the seizures were not related to pregnancy then you must consult a neurophysician for proper evaluation and discontinuation of medicines. In that case consulting a gynecologist will not help.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
