Thanks for using HealthcareMagic. Your epilepsy is refractory, means it has not cured after trying so many medicines. Mostly you may have a scar in the brain. You may require surgery to remove the scar and treat your epilepsy. Contact for knowing whether you will benefit from surgery or not. Bye

Epilepsy cab be due to a number of causes.there are basically organic and inorganic causes.well by now you surely might have done CT scans and MRI to find out a cause.if there is no organic cause then it is difficult.the medication has to be continued for life long.
