I had temporal lobe epilepsy in my childhood. I had seizure in age 5. I took tegrital for 3 years. I then didn't have seizure. Does that mean that my epilepsy is cured?

If your seizure free for 3 years it’s good. As you age your brain also develops. Many a times seizures disappear.In some patients they may recur in adolescence. If you are free till now you might not get any seizures.
