Health Tip: Coping With Epilepsy

(HealthDay News) -- People with epilepsy are prone to injury in the event of a sudden seizure.

The University of California San Francisco Medical Center offers these suggestions to help reduce your risk of injury:
  • Always wear or carry something that identifies you as having epilepsy --a bracelet, necklace or ID card.
  • Make sure that your friends, family and co-workers know what to do.
  • If you've been having seizures, avoid situations that could be dangerous, such as working in high places or swimming by yourself.
  • Understand and follow state rules and laws about driving with epilepsy.
  • Never stop taking your epilepsy medication or change your dose without talking to your doctor.
  • In addition to your seizure medicine, never take any other medication without talking to your doctor or pharmacist.
