Patient of BPPV. MRI of brain showed patch on frontal lobe. On zefretol. Medication right?

I am a patient of BPPV & I was given Betavert 16mg. In an MRI of brain, a patch was seen in the right Frontal Lobe ( white matter ). What is Zefretol 800mg perscribed for? Per medical advice I had been using both drugs (Betavert 2 per day & Zefretol 800mg 1 per day in addition to Atorfit 1 per day & Ginkocer 1 per day) for last 5 months & should use for another 2 months. Is this correct?

Dear Ram... I have gone through your post in which you have mentioned that you are undergoing treatment for BPPV.
The medications suggested by your Doctor are correct.
Betavert is Betahistine which is an anti-vertigo preparation.
Zefretol is an anti convulsant & it has been prescribed to take care of any abnormal activity (uncontrolled or uncoordinated impulse generation) in the patch in your right frontal lobe as revealed in the MRI, which may result in convulsions.
Atorfit is Atorvastatin, takes care of the Lipid profile.
Ginkocer is an extract of Ginkgo Biloba, used as memory enhancer & anti-vertigo agent.
So...follow the dosages of these medications as advised by your Doctor.
There is no need to will be fine.
Wishing you a good health.
Thanks & Take care.
