Epilepsy Treatments: Find the Right Medication
When Medication Does Not Work
Finding the best epilepsy medication for you can be complicated. Your doctor may need to change your medicine or dose from time to time to better control your seizures or reduce unpleasant side effects.
If medications do not control your seizures very well, your doctor may recommend surgery or an implanted device called a vagus nerve stimulator. For children with epilepsy, the doctor may suggest a special diet.
