Drug-Resistant Epilepsy - What to Expect

35% of people with seizures have the type that are resistant to treatment with medication alone. Most people whose seizures continue after trying two appropriately prescribed medications, have very little chance of achieving seizure freedom with additional drugs.

The goals when treating drug-resistant epilepsy are to enhance quality of life by optimizing long-term seizure control, minimizing side effects, and decreasing seizure severity.

VNS Therapy is an approved add-on treatment for reducing the frequency of focal seizures in patients age 4 and older whose seizures have continued even after two or more appropriate medications. Does this sound like you or your loved one?
