Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Primidone is a barbiturate and is sedative a reason for your mother to be sleepy. Negating a diagnosis for which 5 years treatment was done. It needs further neurological correlation and a second opinion and then continue with the management accordingly.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
