Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have epilepsy since childhood. It had disappeared for a while, but it has resurfaced now. My doctor has given me tablets of Lactum 500 mg and 250 mg. How can I prevent it? Are there any precautions? Please help me.

Answered by Dr. Ashok Kumar

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com. I read your query and understand your concerns. I am sorry to inform you that currently, medications are the only effective option to prevent further occurrence of seizures. I am glad to note that there is aresponse with medication. So, you need to follow the advice of your doctor. In addition, to prevent seizure episodes, the following things should be practiced to the possible extent. 1. Regular physical exercise. 2. Timelyand adequate sleep. 3. Avoidance of alcohol or any form of substances. 4. Regular medication. Although I am not sure what the dot in your computed tomography (CT) scan is, often it represents eithertuberculoma or cysticercosis. These two conditions need treatment for a duration of two years or more and many of the individuals get cured over a period of time. I hope this answers you. Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
