Why is it important to have a Seizure Action (or Response) Plan?

  • You and your family play in central role in your seizure management.
  • Your success in managing epilepsy will depend on being prepared to tackle whatever comes your way – from understanding your epilepsy and maintaining seizure control to responding to seizures and managing your safety.
  • Seizure Action Plans can help you organize your seizure information and have it available when and where you need it. A prepared plan can help you know what to do to prevent an emergency or tell others what to do in emergency situations. You can also adapt these plans to different situations in your life.
  • By helping you be prepared, seizures or the fear of seizures won’t prevent you from participating and enjoying your life to the fullest.
