Hope all is well, having had JME epilepsy since the age of 14, I'm 62 now. I find a capsule wallet very useful, putting the specific medication for each day, set for a week, thus less chance of missing medication. Make sure you have enough pills at the end of each week, usually a couple of days in reserve, so you can order a refill from your local GP/Chemist. Depending on the particular epilepsy medication, eg Briviact [which I am on can take a few days longer?] but usually, about two days, watch out for holidays, bank holidays, and week ends? Hope that helps?
