Thank you for posting your query.
is a chronic disease and medications are required for a long time.
Since you already had a recurrence of epileptic attack after stopping Eptoin
, you should be cautious while trying to stop the drug again.
You should have a detailed evaluation including EEG to assess the risk of recurrence of these attacks. Once your neurologist
is satisfied that there is little risk of recurrence of seizures, he would advise to reduce the dose gradually and stop eptoin.
Please do not stop the medications on your own.
