Keeping a seizure diary

A seizure diary is a good way of recording information about your epilepsy. For example you can use it to make a note of:

  • Your seizures and their types
  • How long they last
  • When you change anything about your epilepsy medicine
  • Possible side-effects of your epilepsy medicines
  • What other possible seizure triggers there might have been for you
  • Your monthly periods, if you think they may affect when your seizures happen

You can share your seizure diary with medical professionals such as your family doctor, epilepsy specialist or epilepsy nurse. This can help you and the medical professional to have a two way conversation about what, if anything, needs to happen next in your treatment.
