Epilepsy is treatable and persons with the condition can lead a normal life was the message that doctors underscored at an awareness programme at the Government Stanley Hospital here on Thursday.

The programme was organised by the hospital's Neurology Department as part of the World Epilepsy Day. Head of the department S. Gobinathan emphasised the need to take medicines regularly. “Once diagnosed, you will have to take the medicine for three to 10 years, depending on the condition. But the key is to take the medicines regularly,” he said.
