There are many different causes of epilepsy and, therefore, many different medications used to treat it.
Probably the most well-known medications are Phenobarbital and dilantin. This is a complex subject and should be discussed with a neurologist.

Agree, there are over a dozen commonly used anti epilepsy drugs, and choosing which drug depends on the type of epilepsy and the characteristics of the individual patient.
Seeing a neurologist is the best way to answer the question of which drug might be right for you or your loved one.
