I am 38 years old. I am suffering from epilepsy when I was 8 years old. I am taking EPTOIN tablets since 8 years. Is there any chance to completely cure.

Complete cure is not possible but we can decrease the dose. And gradually over a period of one year can stop medication consult me for further information with detailed history.
When you are seizure free for 2 years, neurologist will do EEG and attempt dose reduction, if epilepsy does not recur, can be stopped, else need to continue.
