Treatment

Once a diagnosis of epilepsy has been made and the decision to treat has been taken, many options are available. Pharmacological, surgical, and behavioral approaches may be taken. The majority of patients with epilepsy are treated with anticonvulsants. Recently, there has also been renewed interest in attempts at behavioral and nonpharmacological approaches to the management of seizures. A minority of patients with drug-resistant epilepsy may proceed to have surgery.

These strategies should not be viewed as being mutually exclusive. Hence, although in the following section, these treatments will be described separately, in practice they may be combined. Indeed, if surgery is pursued it is very likely that patients will receive antiepileptic medication both before and after the operation.
