Post surgery no longer taking anticonvulsant?

My avm was successfully removed in jan 2011. Due to scar tissue my neurologist insists I take anticonvulsants. I’m on my third one and they all cause drowsiness and fatigue. Has anyone had any success quitting anticonvulsants, or found one that doesn’t have these side effects?
