Treatment of resistant epilepsy.

Clin Med. 2014 Dec;14 Suppl 6:s1-6

Authors: Pickrell WO, Smith PE

Treatment resistance affects around 20% of people with epilepsy and carries a significant comorbidity. It is important to ensure that the diagnosis of epilepsy is secure and the underlying cause of the epilepsy is investigated thoroughly. Management involves early referral for epilepsy surgery when suitable, optimisation of pharmacological treatment, and consideration of comorbidities such as depression.
