Thank you for posting your query.

Epilepsy is a chronic condition, and in this condition, one needs to take medicines for a long time for good control of fits. In addition, medicines need to be taken on a regular basis, without skipping even one dose.

In your sister's case, the dose of levipil (250 mg twice daily) seems very low. Please discuss with her neurologist whether it needs to be increased.

I am sure with proper medical treatment, fits can be well controlled in your sister.

Best wishes,
