Thanks for writing to us.
A combination of anti seizure drugs is used when seizures are not controlled with a single drug.
The medicines that have been prescribed to your child need regular monitoring and dosage individualisation according to severity of symptoms. It is not in overdose for her.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
