Dear patient

Thanks for your query.

One thing is certain that you have very infrequent seizures. Thus the chance of seizure free period is likely to be large. Other thing you need to understand is that anti epileptic drugs like eptoin don't cure the seizures. They are prophylactic medication to prevent seizures. The side effects are skin rashes, co ordination problems, gum problems with long term use.
