If you have seizures that change your awareness, consciousness, or muscle control, you may not have the legal right to drive.
The laws about who can drive may seem unfair. But they can keep you and others safe until your seizures are under control.
Be sure to take antiepileptic medicine as prescribed. Taking it incorrectly makes it more likely you'll have an accident.
