What is a Seizure Diary

Keeping a seizure diary can be useful as it may help a person to remember when they have had seizures, and to identify whether there are any specific triggers for the seizures.

This may enable them to try to avoid any known triggers in order to reduce the frequency of seizures. Information recorded in the diary can also help the doctor to determine how effective the current medication is, and to plan future treatment.
Times and dates of seizures are recorded in the diary, along with any other relevant information such as medication changes, menstrual cycle or illness.

The seizure diary on this website can be printed off and used to record seizures for a single month. Further copies of the page can be printed and used for the following months, in order to build up a record of seizures over a number of months.
