The drugs often used for treating this will include Carbamezipine(Tegretol) and Lamotrigeine(Lamicatal).You need to be examined by your PCP/Neurologist and may need an EEG apart from routine medical lab tests and physical examination.Other drugs which can be used include Valparin(Valproate) and Gabapentin(Neurontin).The medicines may need to be continued for upto 4 years till no more attacks are seen.
