Dear Mr Basu
The seizures of your brother seem to be refractory on medicines. As patients are prone to injuries during the seizure you must rule out any brain injury or hemorrhage by CT / MRI Brain. Also kindly get an EEG done along with it. Also definitely please get the Serum Eptoin level done. Please follow up and let me know the results.
Take care.
