first look for the type of seizure . generalized focal abscence etc . then treat according . usually start a broad spectrum anticonvulsants like valproic acid solve the issue in most cases . start with a dose of 15 to 20 mg/kg/day in divided doses can max it upto 40 mg/kg/day or even 60 . major side effect is hepatotoxicity . another novel drug being used often these days is levetriacetam .

Thank you doctor

It is an era of personalized medicine.. No single regimen is applicable for any two patients. Now a days patients became more sensitive, educated and medico-legal cases are very common. Better to strictly follow to current guideline, if you and confident and having slightest doubt better take help from experience person around you. Best wishes
