My daughter who has both gran mal and petite mal seizures has never had a clear EEG, even if she did not experience a seizure during testing. I’m wondering 1) why an AED drug was prescribed if no seizure activity and 2) why you given a certain time to take the AED. Antiepileptic drugs are only effective thru consistent dosage and usually takes weeks to get to a therapeutic level. You can’t just start and stop them. Was there a reason given for the prescription to be what it was? Did you see a neurologist? Did you have blood levels checked, including sugar levels? An MRI might be useful. You describe these episodes in great detail, do you remember them or is someone telling you what you did? My daughter usually has no memory of a seizure. Could it be possible that you might be having mini strokes? I hope you get answers.
