The most effective amount for controlling seizures varies from person to person. People with newly diagnosed epilepsy should be treated with one drug at a time and the effectiveness of the drug treatment should be closely monitored and the drug dose altered as appropriate, in order to achieve complete control of the appropriate and accurate treatment with one drug, a combination of drugs may be tried. However, the drug regime should be kept as simple as possible so as to minimise side effects and encourage compliance.
