    •  The brain is the most complex part of the human body.  This three-pound organ is the seat of intelligence, interpreter of the senses, initiator of body movement, and controller of behavior.  Lying in its bony shell and washed by protective fluid, the brain is the source of all the qualities that define our humanity.  The brain is the crown jewel of the human body. OnlineRx Medicines Call - (USA): +1(646) 681 4902
    •  A seizure is a sudden surge of electrical activity in the brain that usually affects how a person feels or acts for a short time.  Seizures are not a disease in themselves.  There are symptoms of many different disorders that can affect the brain.  The seizures in epilepsy may be related to a brain injury or a family tendency, but often the cause is completely unknown. OnlineRx Medicines Call - (USA): +1(646) 681 4902
    •  Sudden loss of consciousness, usually without warning,  A general stiffening of the body, often with forceful expiration of air,  If the person having the seizure is standing when this happens, there can be a hard fall to ground or floor,  There may be biting of the tongue,  Passage of urine,  Defecation or vomiting (rarely),  Sometimes a change in color to a purplishblue. This phase generally lasts about 30 seconds. OnlineRx Medicines Call - (USA): +1(646) 681 4902
    •  Epilepsy is a neurological condition.  It is a chronic (long-lasting) medical condition marked by recurrent epileptic seizures.  An epileptic seizure is an event of altered brain function caused by abnormal or excessive electrical discharges from brain cells.  Hence, Epilepsy is sometimes called a seizure disorder. OnlineRx Medicines Call - (USA): +1(646) 681 4902
    • Major Types of Epilepsy – Types of Epilepsy Generalized Epilepsy Idiopathic (genetic causes) - Childhood absence epilepsy - Benign focal - Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy epilepsy of - Epilepsy with grand-mal childhood seizures on awakening Others Symptomatic - West syndrome (cause unknown) or - Lennox-Gastaut syndrome cryptogenic (cause - Others unknown) OnlineRx Medicines Call - (USA): +1(646) 681 4902 Partial Epilepsy - Temporal lobe epilepsy - Frontal lobe epilepsy Others
    • In less than half the cases of epilepsy, there is a specific identifiable brain problem that causes the seizures. These include:  Infectious illness (such as meningitis or encephalitis),  Brain malformation during pregnancy,  Trauma to the brain (including lack of oxygen) due to an accident before, during, or after birth or later in childhood,  Metabolic disorders (chemical imbalances in the brain),  Brain tumors,  Blood vessel malformation,  Strokes,  Chromosome disorders. OnlineRx Medicines Call - (USA): +1(646) 681 4902
    •  Medical History- The physician asks for a detailed description of the seizures, as well as family and personal health histories (including pregnancy, birth and development).  Physical Exam and Lab Tests- A complete physical is done to determine whether the seizures are caused by an specific physical or metabolic problems.  Neurological Exam- This includes a thorough study of the nervous system. An EEG (electroencephalogram) may help identify any abnormal electrical activity in the brain. CT or MRI scans may be used to examine the internal structure of the brain. OnlineRx Medicines Call - (USA): +1(646) 681 4902
    •  Most people who have epilepsy - about 80 percent - can have their seizures controlled by taking medicines. Sometimes, if the medicine does not work, doctors may operate on the brain or put some kids on a special diet (called a "ketogenic" diet).  Epilepsy does not get worse as people get older. In fact, many kids with epilepsy get better as they get older and can stop taking medicine. OnlineRx Medicines Call - (USA): +1(646) 681 4902

    • The more you take control, the better you can manage your epilepsy  Understand your epilepsy, including your seizure type.  Make sure to talk to your neurologist or epileptologist about all available treatment options.  Bring your epilepsy medications to each neurologist visit.  Take your medication regularly. Linking this to a routine may be helpful (when you brush your teeth, prepare for bed, etc). There are also devices that can help—like a watch that beeps when your dose is due.  Get enough sleep—lack of it can bring on epileptic seizures.  Keep following up with your neurologist. If you are having seizures or are having difficulty with side effects, you may need to change your epilepsy medicine or dose. OnlineRx Medicines Call - (USA): +1(646) 681 4902
