Thank you for posting your query.
is a chronic disease, which requires medications for a long time.
In many people, fits
do not recur, if they are seizure
free for three years. So, it is alright to taper the dose of epilex chrono and stop it, if he has not had fits for three years.
Only a small percentage of people may get fits again, after discontinuing the medications.
Epilex chrono is a safe drug, and does not cause any serious adverse effects. He can lead a normal life.
