Safety is of primary importance in patients with epilepsy. This is particularly concerning with driving and in work or other activities that may place the patient and others at risk should a seizure occur. The risk of seizure recurrence must be considered on an individual basis before recommendations can be made, but general guidelines are also helpful in discussing this topic with patients.
