Hi,

Thanks for writing in.
A seizure free interval of at least 2 years along with normal EEG and MRI is important before taking the decision to stop seizure medication.
When was the last time you suffered from seizures?
I would suggest you not to stop the medication all at once as seizure medication are always withdrawn slowly. Please discuss this with your treating doctor and withdraw only under medical supervision.
