Dear lybrate-user, Please get a MRI brain and EEG. If the reports are normal, then I think your medicine should be tapered slowly and stopped.

Since last 13 years you are seizure free. So you do MRI brain and EEG. And If the reports are normal, then your anti seizure drugs should be tapered slowly and stopped.
