Thank you for posting your query.

Epsolin (phenytoin) is a good medication for treating epilepsy or fits, so, it should be continued.

For sleep disturbance, there are a few options. Zolpidem is a good sleeping pill, which does not lead to addiction or hang over. I use a dose of 10 mg at bed time for my patients.

Clonazepam is another option, which reduces anxiety and controls fits, in addition to producing sleep.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
