In brief: CPS
Cps, is more common and difficult to treat than grand mal or generalized seizures, sometimes one seizure medication is not enough to treat cps, in some cases 2-3 medications are needed to acheive the seizure control, if cps is uncontrolled with 3 medications for 6 months then a work up for epilepsy surgery may be recommended.
