Lifestyle and home remedies

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Understanding your condition can help you control it.

  • Take your medication correctly. Don't adjust your dosage levels before talking to your doctor. If you feel your medication should be changed, discuss it with your doctor.
  • Get enough sleep. Lack of sleep can trigger seizures. Be sure to get adequate rest every night.
  • Wear a medical alert bracelet. This will help emergency personnel know how to treat you correctly.
  • Exercise. Exercising may help keep you physically healthy and reduce depression. Make sure to drink enough water and rest if you get tired during exercise.

In addition, make healthy life choices such as managing stress, limiting alcoholic beverages and avoiding cigarettes.
