Q.

Concerned

I am currently giving my daughter Tegretrol for epilypsy and I want to know if this will 100% prevent her from having any further fits. What are the chances? Please advise.

Tegretol is an excellent anti-epileptic medicine.Once your daughter is on the correct dose her epilepsy should be well controlled and she may not have any further fits. Sometimes children may have an occasiomnal fit but this is usually when the Tegretol has not been taken regularly.
