Your daughter having Epilepsy controlled on Valproate Chrono 200 mg, what is her weight may be because of viral fever she had a break through seizure, as you have consulted a doctor, you should follow his advice ,if possible discuss with local doctor.

I she has not missed any dose of Valproate, Torleva is good anticonvulsant and you can give both and once you reach your home ,consult your Neurologist what drug would be best for her.

She should not get any seizure now. both are good drugs but depending on type of sezure only one may be required in correct dose. OK

Best of luck to her.
