If two different anti-seizure medications haven’t controlled your seizures, there is less than a 5% chance that another one will.
If this is you, it’s time to take the next step in your care and see an epileptologist at a Comprehensive Epilepsy Center.

What is an epileptologist?
An epileptologist is a neurologist who specializes in the treatment of epilepsy and seizure disorders. Epileptologists are part of the epilepsy care team at a Comprehensive Epilepsy Center.
An epileptologist can help those:
- whose seizures are not controlled with the first 2 or 3 anti-seizure medications
- who need specialized care and a comprehensive diagnosis (example: advanced testing using EEG-video monitoring)
