Im sorry to hear about your seizures. Well you can safely use any of the benzodiazepines to counter the sleep issues. These would include drugs like lorazepam, midazolam , alprazolam or xanax etc. These can be safely used and they would not trigger a seizure. Secondly you can also use zolpidem or ambien to help with the sleep issues as well. you should contact your doctor to get a prescription of one of these drugs. Do not use other medications or herbal products without asking your doctor. You can also use valerian root to help with sleep as well.
