What is the diagnosis made by the doctor for the seizures? Is it generalised tonic clonic epilepsy or partial seizures or febrile seizures? How frequently does she have seizures? There are a lot of medications available for the treatment of seizures depending on the type of seizures that the patient is experiencing. The other alternative medications include lamotrigine, carbamazepine, valproate, topiramate, etc. Please speak with your doctor about all these.
