Keeping a seizure diary

Seizure diaryA seizure diary can be a helpful record of what’s been happening with your epilepsy, for you and your doctor or epilepsy specialist. 

You can use a seizure diary to record anything to do with your epilepsy. For example, when you have seizures, what type, and any possible seizure triggers. You can also record if you’re having any possible side effects from your anti-epileptic drugs.

If you feel that your seizures may be linked to your periods, you may also wish to record this in your diary.

Hi Caroline

If you want to download your own seizure diary, you can do the individual pages for this from our website.

But you may prefer to get a diary in booklet form made by us. If so, you could order one from our online shop, or from the epilepsy Helpline: freephone 0808 800 5050.

You may also be interested in our new Epilepsy Action seizure app.

I do hope this answers your question.
