Girl with simple partial seizure as swallowing food

Resolved Question:

I have a daughter age 4 years and weighing 17 kilos, several months ago began to get her simple partial seizures (focal), and the symptoms: My daughter feels like a swallow food, bitter, and begins swallowing with a frown on the face, without losing consciousness or fall or even stiffness in muscles and the duration of seizure approximately 15 seconds (see video). In the beginning and in the worst cases of disease my daughter was gets her case every half hour, and could not sleep because of it. CT scan and EEG were clean (good) , then we started use Tegretol 2%, reaching the dose to 15 ml twice a day ,but the seizure does not stop! Seizure became gets her once a week (the drug level of Tegretol in the blood reached to 5.31). Then the Neurologist reduced the Tegretol to 13 ml and ? added KEPPRA at a dose of 2.5 ml twice a day, but still those seizures get her every week!!
1- Are the diagnosis and the treatment correct? What have to do to stop the seizures?
2-Is it really that cases of seizures like my daughter be the most difficult in the treatment than the case of seizures with loss of consciousness?
3 - What is usually the cure rate of this type of seizures at the kids?
4– Does the condition could be worse if my daughter left the treatment?

Thank you
