Hello...in adolescence and young adulthood, non-compliance with the medication regimen and sleep deprivation are potential triggers.it could also be due to metabolism disturbances ,,high grade fever .repepatation of fits depends on cause... Repeated attack of seizure is called epilepsy .one need to take long term medication in such cases

Seizures are mainly due to electrical conduction abnormalities in the brain cells and it will lead to abnormal movements in limbs..so it is usually controlled by medications and it should be continued for some time..so continue the medications as per your neurologist advice..Seizures and epilepsy are same
