  • Hi Poppy Storey

    I am unsure whether undergoing a cardioversion procedure would trigger your epilepsy, especially if it is well controlled by medications. However, if you are concerned, please talk to your cardiologist. He will have experience of performing cardioversions on those with other pre-existing medical conditions and will be able to reassure you.

    Kind regards
