Hi,

Yes, your medicines are effective anti-epileptics. Usually medications are continued for a period of at least three years after the last episode. Going by this, I expect that your doctor will start tapering off your medicines from your next visit onwards. In addition, he may also advise a brain imaging if any lesions were found in your brain previously, to assess their current status. However, completing the course of anti-epileptics does not mean that there is no risk of recurrence of seizures again in life.

Hope this helps you. Best wishes.
