The most common treatment for epilepsy is the use of anti-epileptic drugs (ASMs), which successfully control seizures in up to 70% of people. Those who don’t gain seizure control through ASMs alone are sometimes offered surgery, diets or other therapies.

Those who experience more frequent or prolonged seizures may also be prescribed emergency medication.

Attending regular medical appointments and discussing concerns with healthcare professionals is an important aspect of epilepsy management.

Whether you are a person living with epilepsy, care for someone who does, or are an interested community member, we hope that you find this information useful.
