Answer

Answer

Patients who are old enough to drive should be warned about driving and operating heavy machinery. Physicians should be familiar with state laws concerning driving with epilepsy; inform patients concerning these legal matters.

For patient education information, see the Brain and Nervous System Center, as well as Epilepsy.
