COVID-19 and Epilepsy
Until now, there is no evidence of a direct effect of COVID-19 on seizures or epilepsy. However, patients may experience worsening of seizures due to systemic illnesses, drug interactions, decreased access to antiseizure medications and increased stress. People with epilepsy require appropriate counselling and attention in these areas. If you have important information to share about management of people with epilepsy in relation to COVID-19, email us at email@example.com. We will also be posting relevant information on this page.
