Thanks for writing to us.
Epilepsy is not hereditary problem and you are likely to have normal children. If you do not disclose about epilepsy now then your in laws will come to know once you get pregnant as the drugs might have to be stopped to prevent their effect on the baby. It is best to take them into your confidence.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
