Hi,

Epilepsy is nothing to be scared of.please give proper medication without default. Don't let her in to swimming or ride on bikes on road. She can play but with supervision.

She has to take adequate rest and good food intake with fruits and vegetables. Don't let her use screens more than 1 hour per day.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Prasanna Lakshmi, Pediatrician
