Thanks for writing to us.
Fits in children are mostly idiopathic- no cause is detected. The treatment is continued till she does not get any convulsion for three consecutive years.
The side effects of this tablet are not dangerous and if you stop the treatment and she suffers a convulsion it might cause an irreparable damage to her brain.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
