How often does he have seizures and what type I’ve got epilepsy myself

He has only had 2 seizures

First was on the 17th August and 2nd 25th August 2018

Nothing since

Focal seizures

Aww he should be fine but if anything does happen or if you start getting worried take him to a and e just incase it’s better to be safe

Thank you

I’ve made contact with the Epilepsy foundation and he should be ok ~ maybe a little tired in the morning

Aww that’s good are you in the Uk or us and np

No I’m in Australia

Aww cool

Hope all is well, having had JME epilepsy since the age of 14, I'm 62 now. I find a capsule wallet very useful, putting the specific medication for each day, set for a week, thus less chance of missing medication. Make sure you have enough pills at the end of each week, usually a couple of days in reserve, so you can order a refill from your local GP/Chemist. Depending on the particular epilepsy medication, eg Briviact [which I am on can take a few days longer?] but usually, about two days, watch out for holidays, bank holidays, and week ends? Hope that helps?
