Epilepsy Awareness Sites
Over 3 million people are living with seizures and epilepsy in the U.S, and about 200,000 new cases are diagnosed annually in the US. While many people with epilepsy gain partial or complete control of their seizures, others still continue to have frequent seizures despite taking anti- epileptic medication. You should always talk to your doctor about any questions regarding epilepsy and seizures.
