My wife is taking tegrital (Carbamazepine) 200 mg daily, earlier she was taking 600 mg daily but gradually reduced to 200. This medicine she is taking since the age of 12 due to seizures, and now she is 46 years old. The last attach had happened almost 15 years ago, hence my question is that she will continue the medicine or should stop it.

You should talk to an epilepsy specialist before stopping it. The chances of seizure recurrence after stopping medications is about 50-50. Studying earlier Mris and repeating the eeg might help in predicting if she needs to continue taking medications.

My brother got a lack of oxygen during birth, which led to his mental disability, he is 12 years old now. He suffers from epileptic seizures too. He takes tegrital (carbamazepine) and phenotal 60 (phenobarbitone ). Phenotal is no longer available in our country and with taking other brands of the drug, his seizure attacks wasn't controlled, the serum level of phenobarbitone was 34.96 umol/l which is below the therapeutic range, so his doctor decided to switch his medication to epanutin (phenytoin sodium) so we stopped phenobarbitone gradually within 5 days and started to give him phenytoin. That was last month. He is tired and upset most of the time and he has sleep disturbances. He had tonsillitis in the last 2 days. Today we were in the car, suddenly his face paled and he closed his eyes and then keep closing and opening them, but he talked to me, I thought that his blood pressure went down because he didn't have breakfast. When we got home he didn't remember that we were in the car, is this a type of absence seizure? Is that related to phenytoin? Is it normal when starting using phenytoin? Thank you.

He suffers ...
No the episode is not an absence seizure that has different features, but it may be related to his medicine intake and may have been drowsy. I suggest you keep amental note of the episode and continue with medication, in case it recurs you must visit your doctor as it may be a seizure (not necessarily absence) and he may have to be reviewed.

Mazetol Tablet is unsafe to use during pregnancy. There is positive evidence of human fetal risk, but the benefits from use in pregnant women may be acceptable despite the risk, so consult Neurophysician treating you

As per book, after three years of seizures free period you can gradually taper off medicine if there's relapse you will have to continue with it.
