What to Do When Seizure Medications Don’t Work for Epilepsy

Key Takeaways

  • While two out of three people with epilepsy get effective seizure control from medications, that leaves a large number of people without control over their seizures.
  • If you have drug-resistant epilepsy, consider a comprehensive evaluation to learn about other options that may improve seizure control and your quality of life.
  • When medications don’t control seizures, other options may include brain surgery and medical devices called neurostimulators.

*Every person’s seizures are different and individual results will vary. RNS Ambassadors are patient volunteers.

Rx Only. The RNS® System is an adjunctive therapy for adults with refractory, partial onset seizures with no more than 2 epileptogenic foci. See important safety information.
