Working With Your Doctor for the Best Epilepsy Treatment

continued...

If you continue to have seizures while taking medication, there are several questions you can ask your doctor:

  • Are there any new drugs for epilepsy that might work for me?
  • Should I go to a special center for more testing?
  • Do I have the kind of epilepsy that might be treated by surgery?
  • Would my seizures respond to VNS therapy?

Having epilepsy can make it feel like you are not in complete control of your life. You can do your best to take back control by following these three steps: Work in partnership with your doctor. Keep track of information, such as when you have the seizures and the side effects of your medications. Ask questions. There are many resources available to help you manage your epilepsy and live a happy, healthy, productive life.
