What causes mild shocks ?

Hi Dr My 27 year old daughter had small shocks since see was 17 but they were very rare and she never fell down. We consulted a specialist and he prescribed some medicine which did have some side effect, after we inform him about the situation he changed the medicine at once which provoked two falls one after the other and she was bed ridden in a clink. Since then she did not fall. Now she is been taking medicine for 3 years, alway increasing the dose. Will it ever be curable or at keep it under control.
