In brief: In some situations

For enlistment or commissioning the following is disqualifying ”epilepsy, beyond the age of 5 unless the applicant has been free of seizures for a period of 5 years while taking no medication for seizure control, and has a normal electroencephalogram (eeg).
”.

In brief: Depends

If you still need medication, you will probably not be allowed to enter. If you have been seizure free off medication, and have a normal eeg, there should be no problem.
