There isn’t an actual cure for Epilepsy. The are treatments ( besides medications ) that can possibly/maybe ( no guarantees ) , help us become seizure free or reduce our seizure amounts . That doesn’t mean that we’re cured. You would still have to take medication. Depending on how well the treatment works, you may possibly be able to reduce your dosage on medication. But, that’s also, a no guarantee.

When they increase you med dosage, they measure by your weight. Once you reach your max dose, they have to discuss med change with you and what medications they are planning.

I’m on 4 medications and if I added up all my med dosages, it would be over 20,000 mg
