How to minimize the Gardenal collateral effects

A friend has been using Gardenal because he had some seizures (epilepsy). However he's very sleepy, drowsy, his motor coordination is not good and he has gained weight (swelled).

A detail: recently he did a cancer surgery, but not all was removed (high risk surgery).

He's trying to reduces the recommended dose. When he does it, starts to feel better, but than he has a seizure again and has to return to the previous dose.

How is possible to do to minimize these Gardenal side-effects?

Thank you very much.
