What Is Intractable Epilepsy?

About one-third of people with epilepsy will eventually develop intractable epilepsy. This means that medicines do not work well, or at all, to control the seizures.

Intractable epilepsy can have a big effect on your life. People with intractable epilepsy may have trouble at work or school. They may worry a lot about when their next seizure will come. They may also have injuries that result from their seizures.
