Neurologist 's  Response
It is not possible to take decisions regarding medication change on this online forum. You should regularly follow up with your neurosurgeon whenever he calls you. Medications for seizure are usually tapered and stopped after a seizure free period of 2-3 yrs. However there is always a very small chance that seizures may come back. Keep in touch with your treating doctor.
Good luck.
