Answer

Answer

Driving age patients should refrain from driving until deemed safe and seizure-free, according to the laws of their state. For example, in the State of Wisconsin, patients need to be seizure-free for 3 months before they can resume driving, whereas in Arkansas, patients need to be seizure-free for 1 year. For individual state regulations, see the Epilepsy Foundation Web site.
