Seizures - Topic Overview

No matter what caused the seizure, you can help the person having a seizure.

A person who has had a seizure should not drive, swim, climb ladders, or operate machinery until he or she has seen a doctor about the seizure.

Treatment of a seizure depends on what has caused the seizure.

Check your symptoms to decide if and when you should see a doctor.
