Epilepsy and seizures
My brother had his first seizure when he was 24 years old. He was then diagnosed with a tumour in his brain which was operated out in a month. He was then on medication and seizure free for five years. Due to missing of doses he got a seizure again after 5 years. Now, for the last one year he has been having seizures every 3 months inspite of being on regular medication. Any idea how he can reduce the no. Of seizures?

Had he had a scan again and an EEG ? Although the chances of the tumour recurrence is small that needs to be ruled out. This might be totally unrelated to the previous tumour. He might need more medication. You need to see the neurologist.
