Hi Pinku

The most common way epilepsy is treated is with epilepsy medicine. The medicine does not cure epilepsy, but aims to try and stop seizures happening. For epilepsy medicine to stop your seizures, you must, take your medicine every day as advised by your doctor. When someone forgets to take their medicine, a seizure can happen.

Thanks a lot for your advices and suggestions,belief the same co-opeartion for always.




I have had epilepsy for 40 years now, and am still taking medication. There is no cure for epilepsy, but it is vital that you take your daily medication and do not miss any dosage. Once the medication is in the system, this should help to alleviate the occurrence of seizures, but will not stop them completely. Should you have any queries regarding your medication, kindly consult your Neurologist or doctor. All the best and keep in touch!
