Abstract

It is generally accepted that anticonvulsant therapy should be offered once a patient has experienced 2 or more seizures. However, there iscontroversy over whether treatment should be offered after a single seizure. The type of epileptic event that has occurred may determine whether or not a single episode will bring the individual to medical attention. In individuals who experience a single seizure, there is significantly increased risk of recurrence if neurological or paroxysmal electroencephalogram abnormalities art present or if the seizure is partial. Anticonvulsant therapy, if taken as prescribed after a single seizure, will substantially reduce the risk of seizure recurrence. Unlessa further seizure would hold little disadvantage, early treatment probably offers distinctly more benefit than hazard. No data are available to indicate the most appropriate duration of therapy after a single seizure.
