Hello , i am Dr Saleem . Welcome to JustAnswer . I will be answering your shortly .
Did she miss a dose before the latest seizure episode? Sorry to know about her struggle with epilepsy . Has the dose been readjusted following the seizure?
Ok . Having epilepsy does not usually prevent people from being able to travel by air. However, some people’s seizures are triggered by being very tired (which could happen because of long journeys or ‘jet lag’). Seizures can also be triggered by excitement or anxiety, which can affect some people when they are flying. If she as been stable for most of the time on these medicines then you may go ahead . Just keep the dosages in mind and need to take them as per time zones .It means that if you take medication at regular intervals, and are travelling to a different time zone, then you may need to gradually adjust when you take your medication, so that you can take it at an appropriate time of day.
I wish you a safe travel ahead.
Should discuss the use of rectal medication (for example, Valium) with your child's doctor, give the child the correct dose. Other option could be Intra muscular injection.
Let me know if you have any further queries.

Height as such isnt a risk factor for triggering a seizure but managing it in plane can be an issue . Still i would say it should be ok to go
