Thank you for posting your query.

I can understand the discomfort of taking medicines over the long period.

However, both the problems in your son- hypothyroidism and epilepsy- require long-term medications.

For thyroid problem, he has to take the medicines for whole life.

For epilepsy, at least three to five years of continuous medications are required.

There is no home remedy for either of these problems.
