couple of questions about seizures

So I have done a lot, a lot of research on this--read medical textbooks, been to the web pages of a dozen organisations, and I cannot find anywhere a real answer to the question, so.

Is it possible for someone with grand mal (tonic-clonic) idiopathic seizures to have multiple seizures in one day? What is the average regularity of seizures for such a person?

This is for a character who has analogues--one roughly first to fifth century, one twenty-first century. Obviously the earlier one is not medicated, but the twenty-first century guy takes Dilantin BID. How soon after missing a dose of an anti-seizure medication can a person expect to start having seizures again (assuming the med works, obviously)?
