Written by noted specialist Andrew Wilner, Epilepsy: 199 Answers provides accurate, current, and comprehensible medical information for epilepsy patients, family members, and anyone involved in patient care.

This completely updated edition includes information on everything from brain surgery to diet. New sections cover alternative therapies, recent findings on birth defects possibly caused by new antiepileptic drugs, the ketogenic and Atkins diets for patients, new FDA indication for the vagus nerve stimulator, and updated recommendations for women and epilepsy. The book also includes a comprehensive resource section, and there's a health record tracker so patients can accurately monitor their progress and receive optimal care.
