Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. If medications can not control epilepsy, doses need to be adjusted, combination of an tiepileptics need to be considered. More important is the work up to find out any primary cause of seizure in the brain by having MRI brain with contrast and other EEG studies.

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
