How often do seizures occur in epileptics?Neurology
My 17 year old girl is diagnosed with epileptic seizures. How often do seizures tend to occur, and is it "normal" to have a seizure every week?
DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)
If seizures are well controlled; there should be minimal seizures. The goal of treatment is no seizures although that may not always be possible.
A neurologist opinion would be valuable to assess patient and calibrate medications to control the fits.
