Taking medication for epilepsy. Feeling tired, have headaches. Why?

I'm epileptic and have been for the past 5 years. My seizures were under control as I was having one every year but lately I've had two in 20days. My doctors increased my tablets. Since the increase I have a constant headache and feel tired. I've also had stressful few days. I'm wondering why I'm getting these constant headaches and feeling so shattered and tired?

Thank you for posting your query.

The seizure frequency may change in epilepsy, which is usually managed with increasing the dose of the current drug or adding another drug.

Your symptoms could be related to the medication. However, we need to know what medication you are using and also the dose of medications, so that we can help you better.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
