Eptoin is an anti-epileptic drug and it has a specific indications to be used only in established seizure disorder. In your case it seems it has been started just empirically which we don't agree upon its usage. Moreover, it has many side effects. If you never had a seizure nor had head injury in the accident you mentioned, there is no need to take it and safely you can stop it also.
