Hi there!

There is nothing as the most effective medication for seizures. The best suitable medication would depend on the type of seizures and the size effect profile aside individual susceptibility; while a few patients may need to be managed on a combination of medications. If the seizures are believed to be due to mass effect (scar tissue), the possibility of a surgical resection would need to be well evaluated against the risks. I would suggest discussing the situation and the management plan in detail with the treating neurologist.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
