Back Can I reduce my risk of seizures?

If you have epilepsy and are experiencing seizures, you can help reduce the risk of a seizure by taking medication as prescribed by your doctor, getting enough sleep, avoiding stress, and seeing your neurologist or epileptologist regularly.

Remember, treatment of epilepsy is different for each person, so it’s best to become as educated as possible. The good news is that you are not alone. At, you’ll find plenty of encouragement, support, and epilepsy information to help you achieve your goal of freedom from seizures.

If you or your loved one have had a seizure, a correct diagnosis is essential. After determining the exact kind of seizure you have and how it relates to any other kind of underlying medical condition you may have, a treatment plan can begin. But remember, the physician is treating the “whole” person, so the seizure could very likely be related to another condition that also needs treatment.
