There has been much more awareness of the plight of women with epilepsy and their reproductive health, especially the problem of certain anti-convulsant medications. Focusing on women, this book covers different types of epilepsy and seizure; how epilepsy may affect your life; diagnosis; and living with epilepsy.
Epilepsy, traditionally the 'Cinderella' of medicine, now has a higher profile thanks to the efforts of the World Health Organisation who have led a campaign called Out of the Shadows, to make the public more aware of the condition. In particular, there has been much more awareness of the plight of women with epilepsy and their reproductive health, especially the problem of certain anti-convulsant medications and their effects on the unborn child. This new edition will strengthen the focus on women and give a strong update on drugs and surgery, a sometimes neglected but modern approach which may actually 'cure' epilepsy. This book also covers: different types of epilepsy and seizure according to the most recent classifications; how epilepsy may affect your life; diagnosis; and living with epilepsy.
