According to researchers from Dell Children’s Medical Center, in Austin as well as University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, along with the misinformation, they were also nurturing noticeable gaps in drug treatment noesis. Their lack of knowledge about the perfect time (when & how many seizures after) for prescribing anti-convulsing drug for their patients. These people have no clear idea about the required number of unsuccessful tries of drug treatment before thinking about another type of drug free therapy.

This research has been placed on the table at San Diego, during American Epilepsy Society’s annual meeting. According to Dr. Freedom Perkins it is necessary that practice standards are maintained in order to achieve optimal success in controlling seizures and there improving the quality of life of patients suffering from patients. He believed that these findings are not unique to Texas only. He believes that if health care providers are not well informed then success cannot be achieved. So it is necessary to improve knowledge first.
