I am a patient of Simple partial sizures since last 13 years. previously my Neuro physician precibed me around 5 years back to take Mazetol SR 400 1 in morning & 1.5 in night.& clozam 10 tab 1 in night. Then i shifted to a new city of residence & after but some i once in a month i always had a feel of small seizures which i can presense & are not harmful and stays for 2-3 seconds.But when i consulted a new Neurologist in the new city, he advised to stop Clozam 10 and gradually he stopped it. and instead of that he advised to take Topaz 50mg 1 in morning & 1 in Night. but due to this, i had a major stroke again in 2 months. time. and the frequescy of small seizures rose to 10 in 2 months. also i lost 5 kg of weight. i. Plz advice, what going wrong.

I have epilepsy for the past 19 years (began in 1994). I began with 800mg of Carbamazepine. It was gradually decreased to 100mg in 5 years time but not withdrawn. In 2005, I had a 3 seizures in a period of six months. At that time my medication was changed to Levetiracetam 500mg – 500mg & Divalproex Sodium ER- 1000mg at night. For three years I was ok and hence in 2009 my medication was gradually reduced. When I was off Divalproex Sodium completely and on Levetiracetam 250mg – 500mg I had a seizure again. My medication of Levetiracetam was increased to 500mg – 500mg and then later as the seizures continued a small dose of Oxcarbazepine was introduced. As the seizures continued, in 2012 my medication to Leviteracetam 1500mg – 1500mg and Oxcarbazepine 600mg – 600mg (morn. and even.). Recently I has a seizure again and I was put back on Leviteracetam 1500mg – 1500mg and Divalproex Sodium i.e. Valparin Chrono 300x2mg – 300x2mg (morn. and even.). Oxcarbazepine has been discontinued gradually. I am confused by this state of medication and have doubts about it.

I am 50 years old and I have been a patient of epilepsy since 20 years. I was taking Zeptol CR 400 mg & Topomac 50 mg(thrice a day) which means 1200 mg Zeptol and 150 mg Topomac a day. From last 15 years seizures were in control but on the advice of my doctor I have reduce the dose of the medicine to 200 mg Zeptol and 50 mg Topomac per day. Seizures started again 4 months back, so after 2 months of the seizures doctor changed the medicine to Oxetole 300 mg and Clobachem 5 mg(twice a day).. Still seizures dint come in control, now I am taking Oxetole 1050 mg & Clobachem 10.5 mg on the doctor's advice.But still seizures are not in control, I think the new medicine is not working on me. Can you suggest me what should I do??
