Hello Anubhav, Thanks for the question.

Let me answer your question one by one:

1. Your medicine will stop if there is no episode of fits for atleast three consecutive years. If this happens than your medicine will be stopped by reducing its doses.

2.The dislocation of shoulder is no related to your medication their might be other reasons for that like old trauma that causes loosing of tendons. As you got dislocation for 4 times so now the only treatment is surgery.

3. Your loss of memory, hearing, vision problem, more sleep etc. are due to the medicine you are taking.These are the side effects of the medication.

4. The cause of epilepsy is unknown in 80% of cases. Other causes are old head injury, NCC, lesions which can be investigated by EEG or CT head.

5. Yes you can gee your fit body by regular exercises and proper diet and life style changes.

Thanks and hope you get you all answers.
