There are many different medicines that can prevent or stop seizures. Medicine is the most common way of treating epilepsy and is almost always the first treatment tried. They will successfully control seizures for about 7 out of 10 people with epilepsy. These are sometimes called anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) or anti-seizure drugs.

This section provides in-depth information on epilepsy medications and how to use them. It’s important to talk with your doctor about the pros and cons of the different seizure medicines available to treat your kind of epilepsy.
