Risk calculators and risk factors for Seizure secondary prevention

The following tips may help reduce the risk of recurrent seizure:

  • Always take your medications as your doctor instructed. Family members should observe and record any seizure information to make sure the person gets proper treatment.
  • Get plenty of quality sleep, reduce stress, exercise, and eat a healthy diet. Poor health habits can make you more likely to have more seizures.

You might help lower your risk of seizures if you:

  • Use helmets to prevent head injury. This will lessen the likelihood of a brain injury that leads to seizures.
  • Avoid illegal street drugs.

You should not drive if you have uncontrolled seizures. Every U.S. state has a different law detailing which people with a history of seizures are allowed to drive. If you have uncontrolled seizures, you should avoid activities where loss of awareness would cause great danger, such as climbing to high places, biking, and swimming alone.
