Women with Epilepsy Program
Women with epilepsy have unique needs. Epilepsy and seizure medications can affect hormone levels, menstruation, fertility, birth control, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. Our experts will discuss these issues and how to mitigate them.
Mental Health Support
People with epilepsy may experience anxiety, depression, and memory and concentration problems. Neuropsychologists will meet with you to talk about these concerns and how to address them.
Duke neuroscientists study all aspects of epilepsy, from why it happens to how to prevent and treat it. You may be eligible to participate in clinical trials and receive experimental diagnostic or treatment methods before they are widely available.
Because epilepsy is a common neurological disease, there is a large community of people who understand what you’re going through. Making local connections can help you learn from others with similar experiences.
