Seizures Emergencies Prevention
For many people with recurrent seizures, one key to prevention is taking prescribed medication on a regular basis.
- Failure to take antiseizure medications as prescribed is a common cause of recurrent seizures. Certain medical conditions or interaction with other medication can lead to temporary failure of the antiseizure medicine even if taken properly.
- If the cause of the seizure is discovered, it is important to treat that condition and address whatever caused the seizure.
