CAN EPILEPSY BE TREATED PERMANENTLY? WHAT IS THE FIRST AID FOR A PATIENT WITH EPILEPSY?

During epileptic episodes, electrical activity in the brain increases, which leads to seizures, strange behavior, and possibly even loss of consciousness. Epilepsy needs special care from the people around the patient to avoid any risks. Initially, the treatment strategy starts with neurological drugs that regulate the electrical activity in the brain. When medications fail, several other treatment methods become viable such as interventional therapy, surgical treatment, diet therapy. Our neurologists advise keeping the patient during a seizure in a safe place away from sharp objects that might harm him, not forcing the patient to eat or drink during the episode, and taking off any clothing items that may affect his airway.
