Medication is usually the first-line treatment of epilepsy- 70% of people diagnosed with epilepsy will gain seizure control with medication. While today epilepsy is mostly treated with medication, it is not a cure and only provides control of seizures. Medication comes in various forms such as capsules, tablets or syrup.

For some people who are having difficulty gaining seizure control, there may be other treatment options available.

Surgery, Vagus Nerve Stimulator (VNS), medication and dietary therapies are some other options.
