How can Epilepsy Monitoring Help you?

Seizures that are difficult to control with medication (intractable seizures) can be devastating to people who are trying desperately to get the most out of life despite a debilitating condition like epilepsy. 

Video EEG monitoring can undeniably give you the answers you are looking for. In fact, 3 out of 10 people who come to our unit do not even have epilepsy, which is precisely why their medication is not working. They have been diagnosed incorrectly and are therefore being treated inappropriately...
70% of patients will have their seizures under control using a single drug.
What do I do if I forget a dose of medication?
Our advice is to make it up. Otherwise it will take several days for your drug level to come back up to where it should be. Take the make-up pill before or after your next scheduled dose. This will help you avoid dizziness from taking a double dose of medication.
Candidates for surgery are patients whose seizures significantly decrease quality of life, despite adequate trials of medication.
