How can a complete blood count (CBC) help in the diagnosis of epilepsy?

A CBC helps the doctor establish a baseline for your health and can identify infections, allergies, and other issues that may affect which medication will work best for you. It can also help your doctor watch for any side effects your medicine may cause later on.
