Thank you for the query.

If your head injury has caused lost of consciousness, the only thing that should be done in that time was head CT and hospital 24 hours observation. There is no need to take Eptoin after head trauma and I cannot find any explanation for this medicine other than epilepsy. Such can happen after the trauma but you havent mention about something like that so I assume you do not suffer from epilepsy.
I suggest you to visit neurologist and ask him about this medicine as it sounds not necessary.

Hope this will help
