Managing Your Epilepsy

Epilepsy.com offers ways to learn critical information, skills and resources that will help you manage seizures and epilepsy more easily.

We know that living with epilepsy is more than just knowing your type of seizures or what medicine to take. People must learn how to respond to seizures in a variety of situations -- and be prepared to handle whatever comes your way. Living with seizures also means learning how to handle the way epilepsy affects your life including your social, emotional and physical well-being.

The best way to manage your seizures is to take a practical approach emphasizing preparation, prevention, and teamwork.
