Epilepsy is a chronic (long-term) disease, also known as epilepsy. In epilepsy, sudden and uncontrolled discharges occur in neurons in the brain. As a result, involuntary contractions, sensory changes and changes in consciousness occur in the patient. Epilepsy is a disease that occurs in seizures. Between seizures, the patient is healthy. A patient who has had only one seizure in his life is not considered to have epilepsy.
There are approximately 65 million epilepsy patients in the world. Although a drug that can provide a definitive treatment for epilepsy is not currently available, it is a disorder that can be controlled with anti-seizure strategies and medications.
