Thank you for posting your query.
Epilepsy is caused due to abnormal electrical discharges in the brain. Anti-epileptic drugs are necessary to control these abnormal discharges, so as to stop the epileptc fits.
There are several good medications to control the seizures, such as valproate, carbamazepine, levetiracetam, etc.
In addition, if there is problem in blood supply to brain, drugs such as aspirin may be required.
Please discuss these issues with your neurologist.
Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)

He had problem in supply of blood from heart to Brain this means either1. heart is very weak to pump blood to brain then needs cardiologist consultation and work up to know the couse of heart weakness.
2.heart is in good condition but block at internal carotid artery then angiography and thrombolysis can be tried
3.If block in one branch of internal carotid accssecible for angiograpgy then angioplasty can be tried.
4.Block not accssecible to angiography then anastomosis of superficial temporal artery and MCA territory can be tried.
Seizure can be controlled with medications.
