Thank you for asking your query.
I have reviewed the attached CT reports (which is more or less normal) and your clinical history.
Withdrawal of AEDs (Anti eplileptic drugs - like Eptoin) can be considered once the patient had seizure free interval of 3-5 years. You are seizure free for last 17-18 years, you maintain an active lifestyle. And the recent MRI/investigations are within normal limits. In my opinion your AED - (Anti epileptic medication) can be stopped, under medical supervision. The decision to stop AEDs like Eptoin is usually taken on case by case basis analyzing the features of each patient.
Now, its not recommended to stop the drug by yourself. Also you should know that there is always a chance of recurrence of seizure if you stop the drug. Also you should refrain from driving and high risk physical /contact sports once you stop the drug atleast for a couple of months. I my opinion these factors should not deter you from withdrawing the drug. You should get in touch with your treating physician and discuss about withdrawal of the drug and proceed further.
Hope this helps.
