Overview

This book was written with the belief that accurate and comprehensible medical information can empower people with epilepsy to combat their disease. Epilepsy: 199 Answers will help readers better understand their doctor's language and ask better questions. In the revised second edition, both the text and resource sections have been rewritten to reflect the current state of the art of epilepsy treatment. For example, it includes discussions of new antiepileptic drugs that have benefitted many patients with fewer seizures or decreased side effects, the vagal nerve stimulator (VNS), advances in MRI diagnostic precision that have had important implications for patient care, and an improved understanding of the genetic basis of epilepsy.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ender A Akan, B.S., M.D.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book outlines for patients and caregivers, in a step-by-step manner, what to expect with epilepsy and carefully answers many often-asked questions. It is a worthwhile publication for neurologists to use in daily clinical practice.
Purpose: The purpose is to teach patients about epilepsy and to help them better understand their physicians in order to ask better questions. The book is designed to help patients afflicted with epilepsy to better manage their disease. These worthwhile objectives are clearly met in the book.
Audience: The book is written for patients , but it is also a good resource for medical students and especially residents in neurology who are learning to treat patients with epilepsy either in the hospital or in their clinics. The author is a credible authority.
Features: The book analyzes various issues related to a diagnosis of epilepsy. It starts with a clinical description of the disease and its various forms. The book continues to explain medication choices, side-effects, and the importance of proper drug monitoring. What I like in particular is how the book addresses issues such as work and driving, often very important to the patient and among the most asked questions. The book also provides descriptions of imaging modalities and answers questions about drug trial participation. The book succeeds as a clear, well-organized discussion of epilepsy for patients that does not condescend. Appendix A is particularly useful in helping patients organize their disease process with history and a diary to better provide information to their physicians. Appendix B is also useful as it cuts through the confusion of the many medications now on the market and includes both generic and name-brand designations.
Assessment: This is a very useful book that succeeds because of its writing style and its user-friendly organization.
