I feel he is suffering from seizure disorder and u should continue seizure medications.
Do an EEG now. After 2yrs of seizure free period, take another EEG. If 2nd EEG is normal, then start tapering drugs under supervision of ur doctor.

Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, whats about fever , is it present at the time of seizure or not. most common cause of seizure in children is fever called febril seizure. it is subside after 6 yr of age. if seizure occure without fever then you should rule out cause of it by getting CT head n EEG. discuss all of it with your doc n start proper treatment, cont syp eptoin, do not stop it without advising.
