Many medications can help with petit mal seizures.
If associated with the grand mal seizures, Ethosuximide (zarontin) can be very effective. Valproic acid (depakene) and Lamotrigine (lamictal) are effective with or without associated grand mal seizures. Other medications can also be used. In your case, i would speak with your doctor to see if a change in medication is appropriate.
