Anticonvulsant drugs are the most preferred form of epilepsy treatment. Epilepsy itself has 2 different forms, “petit” and “grandmal. This categorization is done on the severity of the condition and the frequency of seizures. The neurologist will go by the individual case history and prescribe medications accordingly. The conventional belief has been that epilepsy cure lies in achieving a 3-year period, free of any seizures, through regular intake of medicines. This period is now extended to 10 years of seizure period. The seizures may stop completely in most cases after this 3-year threshold. Brain surgery is another way to cure the condition and surgeons have achieved success in isolating the brain tissues that trigger the seizures.
The treatment duration depends on individual cases and the response to drugs. In some cases, the person might have to consume medication lifelong. Whatever the nature of the condition, epilepsy does take many years to be treated as cured.
As mentioned, if the person undergoes successful surgery, then he or she can be completely free of the disorder. In any case, doctors manage to bring down the number and frequency of seizures. The person can carry on many of the routine activities. Restrictions may apply towards driving vehicles and so on.
