Homeopath 's  Response
hello nita..‘Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum’.
as your brother is used to taking epileptic medications it cannot be stopped spontaneously.. and it is hazardous to consume alcohol along with the epileptic medication..
yes there is hope with homeopathic medicines.. as he starts responding to the homeopathic medicines his allopathic medicines dosage will lowered in tapering doses..
before going to the homoeopath.. make a list of symptoms as to what triggers his epilepsy the symptoms before during and after convulsions.. his behaviour n gesture.. his temparament .. as these all factors help in the correction selection of the medicine..
wishing him good health..
