Living with Epilepsy:

Most of the people with epilepsy can lead active, independent, and fulfilling lives. These people, however, are often teased, encounter problems caused by ignorance and faced with people who believe that they are incompetent.

You are not responsible for other people's behaviour, but you can help people to better understand epilepsy and show them how to assist you during a seizure.

A Personal Responsibility:

  • Don't take less medicine than prescribed
  • Don't stop your medicine abruptly
  • Don't try other people's pills
  • Don't mix large amount of alcohol with your medication
  • Be honest with your doctor
  • Don't let yourself run out of medication
  • Keep all medication locked up and away from children
  • Keep all medicines away from humidity and dampness
  • Keep a good record of seizures and side effects
