Thank you for posting your query.

Your son has epilepsy as per the history and EEG data.

Epilepsy requires long term treatment, may be lifelog in your son's case.

What was the MRI brain finding?

The drugs are correct in this case. Since he still has fits, following options are avaialble:

1. Increasing the dose of current medications, as per the body weight.
2. Adding a new drug,
3. Work up for epilepsy surgery may be required, if medicines are not able to control his fits.
