Answer Epilepsy (sometimes referred to as a seizure disorder) is a common chronic neurological condition that is characterized by recurrent unprovoked epileptic seizure…s. These seizures are transient signs and/or symptoms due to abnormal excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain. It affects approximately 50 million people worldwide. Epilepsy is usually controlled, but not cured, with medication, although surgery may be considered in difficult cases. Not all Epilepsy syndromes are lifelong, for example some are confined to particular stages of childhood.
There are all sorts of causes of Epilepsy. Different people have it for different reasons. It can happen as a result of a head injury for example. It may be an indication of s…omething more seriously wrong. People who develop brain cancer can first experience seizures. About 1 in every 200 people have epilepsy but almost anyone can experience an epilepsy-related incident during their lifetime. Some people have epilepsy during childhood but it stops as they grow older. People can have experiences of it during their teenage years as their body changes, but again it can clear up later.
First of all let me start off by saying that Epilepsy is the word used when someone has more than one seizure. There are many reasons why you could have Epilepsy, or could hav…e developed it. You could have been born with it, you could of had a head injury, you could have taking the wrong drug or medication. Honestly, there are so many different types of seizures and I am just learning myself that you can have a seizure and not even no it, you can even have seizures in your sleep. I am 32 years old and i was diagnosed as an Epileptic 4 years ago. Let me tell you it has been draining. I am finding out that I have different kinds of seizures that may have even started as early as 10 years ago or more. The truth being that doctors are now finding more and more types of seizures that exist every day. I don't know why i developed it, but if I had to guess it would be because of all the drinking I did when I was younger and being on so many different medications for depression and anxiety, my Doctor would put me on something and if it didn't work he would take me off of it and put me on something else, I have sensitivities to medications also, I no longer have depression but at the time it was like having bottles of different pills just dumped on my brain. It is unfortunate that some doctors just don't care as ling as they get that extra money for writing you that script. but anyways I didn't mean to get off subject, I do that alot LOL. I hope that I helped at least a little. It is a hard thing to go through.
The best thing is to take your medicene regularly as well as dose wise it should be correct.
Epilepsy is a physical disorder that happens to occur in the brain and that effects the nervous system. It causes you to have seizures. 60% of the people with epilepsy are abl…e to controll it with medication. For the other 40% there are other alternatives such as the ketogenic diet, VNS, and surgery. If left untreated it can really be a factor to your everyday life. How if affects you will depend on what kind of epilepsy you have and the severity of it. It could be anything from momentary lapses of conciousness to major seizures, so there is no simple answer. It is different for different people. Some people may have seizures every day, while others may go for days, weeks, months and even years between something happening.
You can't prevent the disease of existing if you already have it, but you can take medicine to prevent seizures :-D Hope the answer was satisfying :-)
The patient will have to take his medicene very regularely, as epilepsy can only be controled,
Basically to know if you have it you need to get an EEG which is basically a brain scan. ALso you would need to see a docter, but one of the quickest ways you can figure out i…f you may have it is if you have seizures that happen at random times. For example if you sleep on a water bed and someone tells you that you were jerking and twitching in your sleep then you may have Epilepsy. Take this from someone who just got diagnosed 'Epilepsy-Free' earlier last year
Eating properly, getting enough sleep, and controlling stress and fevers can help prevent seizures. A person who has epilepsy should be careful not to hyperventilate.
Various forms of medication can be used. What medication may be used will depend on the form and severity of seizures that each individual has. There is no single drug that is… prescribed.
No. You cant prevent it from happening however if you have it and have been diagnosed with it, you can get medication to try and ease or prevent fits.
No, an anticonvulsant is administered to prevent seizures, not a sedative. Sedatives are used to depress the central nervous system to produce calm and diminished responsivene…ss without producing sleep.
Is a sedative administered to prevent the seizures associated with epilepsy
the answer to your question is really not that simple, however I will try to answer it in the best way that I know how.
Marijuana cannot prevent Epilepsy. There are all sorts of reasons for and forms of and levels of severity of Epilepsy, so no one thing can cure or prevent all forms of Epileps…y.
