Most children like to copy adults and may be tempted to copy a parent who takes tablets every day.

It is very important that all medication be kept out of the reach of children.

Avoid carrying tablets in glass bottles as these may break during a seizure. Most pharmacists now supply plastic containers.

Alcohol can interfere with the effectiveness of medication and if consumed should only be taken in moderate amounts.
