With almost 3 million people in the U.S. having some form of epilepsy, and one in ten adults likely to experience a seizure during their life, it is tremendously important that as many people as possible are well informed about epilepsy facts. Epilepsy medicine is a rapidly growing field that can be hard to keep up with from a patient’s perspective. Presently, there are more than 20 available anti-epilepsy medications, as well as electronic treatment devices, diet therapies, and new state-of-the art diagnostic tools. This book covers these topics in a clear and understandable way as well as going over many important lifestyle issues that come up when epilepsy touches your life.
