Whenever your brain has to perform different activities and undergoes pressure, it faces seizures. This eventually leads to epilepsy. In some cases, anti-seizure measures can help to treat the people suffering from epilepsy. But in some cases, the people cannot take up the effect of these anti-seizure medicines.
