HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, some time anti-epileptic drug given on prophylactic basis to prevent the convulsion in certain case history and this methods are widely accepted but some clinician does not do this, if your daughter does not have history of convulsion then no need to give this medicine or if she had convulsion that is being stopped now then stop giving "Eptoin" and no need to worry about this, hope this information helps you, have good day.
