Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
If possible, please upload the MRI brain and EEG reports. The decision to choose specific drugs and the dose depends on the type of epilepsy (seizures) and body weight respectively. Many children require multiple drugs for good seizure control. About 30% patients do not get proper seizure control with medicines and need to be evaluated for a possible epilepsy surgery.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
