Keeping a daily seizure diary is one way to make living with epilepsy easier. By tracking your seizure activity and epilepsy medication routine, you can help provide valuable information to your neurologist or epileptologist. You need to assess your quality of life and tell your health care team how you are functioning and feeling. For example, are you able to perform your day-to-day activities? A seizure diary is a great way to track your progress as it relates to seizure activity and any side effects you may be experiencing.
