 About the Book 

Still having seizures despite taking your epilepsy medication? Unfortunately, you’re not alone. Almost half of the 600,000 people with epilepsy living in the UK still have seizures. Maybe past epilepsy treatments failed to improve your situation. But we estimate that with better treatment for their epilepsy, 108,000 more people could become seizure free. Others might find a treatment that reduces the number or severity of their seizures, or the side-effects they experience. This is why we believe that it’s the right time to seize control and ask: ‘Is there a better treatment for my epilepsy?’In Seize Control, Lisa, Scott, George (with help from his mum Corrin), Gillian, Richard, Matthew, Geoff and Torie talk about the difference their epilepsy treatments have made to their lives. We also bring together information about different epilepsy treatments including brain surgery, deep brain stimulation (DBS), ketogenic diet, and vagus nerve stimulation (VNS)., and advice from Dr Greg Rogers on how you can improve your epilepsy care and treatment.Remember, Epilepsy Action is here to help you on your treatment journey. We wish you the very best on your journey to the right treatment, so please keep in touch.Best wishes,Nicole (editor) and Dr Greg Rogers (epilepsy clinical champion at Royal College of GPs).(While this booklet refers to UK law and practice, the general information may be useful to people living anywhere.
