The side effects can be serious, you can become immune to the medication and have to find something stronger which could have even more side effects.
Anti-seizure medication alone can have long lasting effects on kidneys and the liver among other things. It took me until my son had his 3rd seizure before I said okay, let's put him on medication. It was either let him have seizures (that lasted for quite some time) or take medication that could have permanent effects. That's tough.
I'm not quick to medicate myself or my kids. I don't see how anyone would be.
