Reviews - What do customers think about Epilepsy: A Guide to Balancing Your Life (American Academy of Neurology)?

Balanced View on Epilepsy  Mar 10, 2008
A good synopsis of Epilepsy and how it can present itself in different forms, typical treatments, particularly with medication and basic side effects to take into account. This can indeed be a very complex subject and it was a refreshing approach, albeit an introduction, to some of the technicalities that the doctors do not always explain.
Up-do-date, accessible guide   Feb 4, 2007
Ilo E. Leppik, MD (Director of Research at MINCEP Epilepsy Care Center) presents Epilepsy: A Guide to Balancing Your Life, a resource written especially for individuals diagnosed with epilepsy and their loved ones, sponsored by the American Academy of Neurology. Chapters inform the reader in plain terms about epilepsy and its types of seizures, treatment options including drugs and surgery, issues concerning epilepsy and pregnancy, quality of life concerns, and much more - including a sound debunking of myths (for example, stopping anti-epileptic drugs during pregnancy can potentially do more harm than good since seizures pose a deadly risk to both the baby and the mother). A glossary, index, and list of sources for more information round out this up-do-date, accessible guide strongly recommended for public library collections and the personal reference of epileptics and their families.
