Hi there,
Does your child have some syndromic disorder? Suboptimal treatment is the commonest cause of refractory seizures.Polypharmacy may be needed for complete control of seizures. The diagnosis and medication therapy should be reevaluated. Surgical option may be considered in those with refractory epilepsy where the seizure origin can be localized to one region and only if it will be beneficial for a particular person. You should seek consultation from a hospital with teaching institute or research institute which may provide you more options for your child’s epilepsy control and management. I hope it helps.
Best wishes and regards!
