Summary
Feared and misunderstood for centuries, epilepsy is now a completely manageable condition for many patients. This program overviews newly developed treatments that have greatly reduced, and for some people eliminated, the occurrence of epileptic seizures. It also presents case studies suggesting that the disabling prejudice which has traditionally surrounded epilepsy is fading-and that it no longer inhibits employment, an active lifestyle, or pregnancy. Neurological and drug-related information is provided by Dr. Barry Gidal of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Dr. Martha Morrell of Columbia University, who focuses on the special issues women with epilepsy face.
