Hi Durgesh,

Thank you for posting your query.

I should tell you that epilepsy can not be cured. However, the good news is that it can be kept under control with medications. In many cases, medicines are required for whole life.

Mazetol is a good medicine for treating epilepsy, but make sure you are taking the correct dose (10-20 mg per kg body weight). So, if your weight is 60kg, you should take at least 600 mg daily.

If fits are not controlled with mazetol, there are other good medicines for controlling epilepsy.
Please discuss these issues with your neurologist.

Best wishes,
