Epilepsy is a general term for conditions characterised by recurring epileptic seizures without a clear external cause. There are various forms of epilepsy, each with different causes, manifestations and treatment methods.

Epilepsy cannot be cured; however, seizures can be prevented or alleviated with the help of medications. The prescribed medication must be taken every day, often for the rest of the patient’s life. Sudden discontinuation of epilepsy medications may lead to new epileptic seizures.

Patients diagnosed with epilepsy are treated by medical specialists. A special patient monitoring program has been developed.
