Carry a special identity wristband, (Epi Alert) or neck pendant or card with details of your epilepsy, your medication, first aid and a contact phone number for a relative. Epilepsy Ireland also stocks the Silicone Epi Alert wristbands in our shop.
If you are fortunate enough to experience a warning sign or aura (not everyone does) this may allow you tell someone you may be about to have a seizure or enable you to move to a safe place. A child can carry a card on behalf of a parent which can be given to a helper in the event of a seizure. Keep money and valuables carried to a minimum and conceal them to guard against theft or loss.
