How to Prevent Seizures – 10 Tips to Talk Through

Take Medications as Prescribed

The most effective way to prevent seizures in people with epilepsy is to take anticonvulsants. This medication may help control the symptoms and prevent further complications. Depending on your condition, your doctor may prescribe a specific type or a combination of different anticonvulsants for treatment. The key is to take these medications as prescribed. Indeed, taking anti-seizure drugs on a regular basis plays a key role in controlling seizures. Make sure to take them at the same time every day. By doing this, you may keep a stable level of anticonvulsants in the body to help control the condition. Depending on specific drugs, the effects may last anywhere from 8 hours up to 2 days. If you experience any side effects, make sure to inform your doctor immediately. Do not stop taking the medications without informing your healthcare provider. Otherwise, it would actually induce seizures in the future. [1]
