Will I get better?

If the doctor thinks you have epilepsy, they will probably want you to take epilepsy medicine. When you first start taking it, you might feel sleepy or dizzy for a few days. But that should go away after a while. Sometimes you have to try a few different medicines before you get to the right one for you.

Some children can have an operation to control their epilepsy. And some children go on a very special diet to try and stop their seizures.

Some children grow out of their epilepsy. So then the doctor says they can stop taking their epilepsy medicine. Others have to carry on with the medicine to make sure their seizures don’t come back.
