Condition: Epilepsy – Adult/Child

Epilepsy – Adult/Child Treatment

GPs are encouraged to refer to a neurology specialist with expertise in epilepsy to instigate treatment. The mainstays of treatment are anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs).

The type of epilepsy, age, biological sex and other medications affect the first-line AED for each person. More specialist treatments can include surgery and vagal nerve stimulation.

Medicinal cannabis can be considered when first line therapies have not achieved adequate seizure control.
