Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum

First do not stop treatment on your own. To stop treatment it is necessary to see:
-Risk benefit of continuing treatment
-Seizure free period from last seizure
-EEG findings

Epilex chrono work by increasing inhibitory neurotransmitters like GABA and decreasing excitatory neurotransmitters like GLUTAMATE role in brain.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
