Has Anyone Had Their Seizures Controlled Completely By Medicine And That Change?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am aware that skipping pills could lead to seizures.I am on Vimpat and it has worked great but skipping pills could lead to grand mal seizures. I had a grand mal seizure about a month ago due to not taking my medicine correctly. I've been taking my medicine just fine recently but starting to have petit mal seizures (staring for 10/20 seconds). Can medicine just stop working? can epilepsy continue to get worse?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

I'm taking 500mg of Dilantin (Phenytoin) daily. Been seizure free for about 25 years.
