Hi My name is satya, I have had clonic tonic seizure thrice in my life, one in 2003,then in 2006 and a month back. I took medications as directed by doctor but it has still not cured. Initially i took eptoin/epicent 100mg. Now i have switched over to a new doctor and he has suggested me Encorte Chrono 500mg. I just want to know one thing. Is there end for this problem or will it exist till my death. regards, Satya

Hi Satya...
Thank u for choosing HCM....
Seizure will be due to many reasons...Will it continue in future, for how many years everything depends on the diagnosis they have made...
For some conditions like infection, due to low sugar level, intracranial leision etc seizures will stop occuring once underlying cause is treated..
For Epilepsy ideally the patient is put on anticonvulsant therapy and followed up for 3 years..If seizures doesn't appear for 3years even once then he is less likely to get in future..Then gradually they taper the dose and finally discontinue it..
If seizures doesnot stop they will readjust the dose or change the treatment..
If still no improvement they will try to find out the cause and treat it..
Don't change your doctor again and again because your doctor will be knowing about you better than a new doctor...
