When to Seek Medical Care
If a patient's typical seizure pattern changes, he or she should notify the doctor. If the patient experiences any changes in mental status, or any new weakness, numbness, or tingling, he or she should tell the doctor immediately.
If the patient experiences new onset seizures, an increase in the usual number of seizures, an altered mental status, or a new loss of function, he or she should go to the nearest emergency department for treatment.
