Will taking Torleva 500mg help cure seizure?

i had a couple of black outs stretching over a period of 10 months. I consulted a neuro surgeon and did MRI brain and other tests which were all normal. The doctor diagnosed it as seizure disorder and asked me to take Torleva 500 mg tables one in the morning and one in the evening. I have been on this medication for the last 5 months. There has been no recurrence of the disorder after the last one which happened in July. Do I need to be on this medication for a very long time?? Does it have any side effects?

Hello,

First of all, you should not have an attack for 2-3 years, then the doctor can withdraw the drug gradually. All anti-epileptic drugs have side effects, but if you do not able to tolerate them ask your doctor for help.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dr/Mustafa, Neurologist
