Medication alone isn’t the answer for 1/3 of people having seizures.

If seizures continue after two anti-seizure mediciations have been tried for an appropriate amount of time as determined by a doctor, it is considered to be drug-resistant epilepsy.

If you’ve tried multiple medications yet continue to have seizures, it may be time to consider alternative treatment options. Your answers to these questions may help you and your doctor to determine your current situation and understand your interest in therapies beyond medication.
