Hello,

the doses of the drugs for the seizures are correct. If used for too long anti seizure drugs may result in cognitive decline, so, follow up is necessary to assess correctly if these should be stopped or not. Vitamin B group supplements may help in a certain degree with brain functioning.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
