Basic Treatment of Seizures

Please consult your doctor before starting any treatment.

  • Medications - this requires an accurate diagnosis of the type of epilepsy in order to prescribe the correct medication and include Tegretol and Carbatrol which are used to treat general or partial seizures, Zarontin is used to treat absence seizures, Felbatol is used to treat partial and general seizures, Gabitril is used along with other drugs to help treat partial and generalized seizures, Keppra is also used along with other drugs to help treat partial seizures, Lamicital, Lyrica, Neurontin, Phenytoin, Topamaz, Trileptal, Depakene, Zonegran and Valium are all used to treat seizures.
  • Ketogenic diet - this is one of the oldest treatments used for epilepsy and is intended to try to maintain the fasting metabolism over long periods of time. When the body is fasting, it starts to create ketones which are a byproduct of metabolism. It has been shown to make seizures lessen or disappear. The diet is low in carbohydrates and is high in fat.
  • Biofeedback - this is a method of using imagery and realization to be able to change the functions such as breathing, blood pressure and heart rate. Patients who may have their seizures triggered from stress could possibly see benefits from biofeedback.
  • Melatonin - this is a hormone that is made in the pineal gland and it may be used to reduce the amount of seizures with children.
  • Epilepsy surgeries - these include brain surgery, corpus callosotomy, extratemporal cortical, functional hemispherectomy, lesionectomy, multiple subpial transection and temporal lobe resection.
  • Vagus nerve stimulation - this is a technique that involves implanting a device like a pace maker that can stimulate the vagus nerve.

Advanced Treatment of Seizures

  • The surgical treatments and vagus nerve stimulation are done after surgery screening to see if the patient is a good candidate.
  • They are more intensive forms of treatment than alternative methods or medications.
