Epilepsy can be controlled with medication but there is no cure in majority of cases. In quite good number of cases it undergoes suppression in 3 to 5 years. There are some epileptic syndromes like JME where life time medication may be required. As you were asymptomatic for 5 years your medication was probably tapered. Don't worry consult you doctor for further management and follow his advice.
