At the moment there is no cure for epilepsy. However, with the right type and dosage of anti-epileptic medication, about 70 per cent of people with epilepsy could have their seizures completely controlled. All medication can have side effects, although the majority of people will experience few or relatively mild side effects.   If you are concerned about any possible side effects then it is important to talk to the doctor who may suggest changing either the dosage or the drug itself.
