Join Gulf Coast Epilepsy Alliance (GCEA) for an afternoon in the park to raise awareness for October SUDEP Awareness Month. Enjoy a beautiful butterfly release ceremony, music, food trucks, and friendship, all while supporting GCEA's programs, raising SUDEP awareness and learning how to keep those with epilepsy safe. What can I do to reduce the risk of SUDEP? The full understanding of SUDEP is still unfolding, but there are measures that people with epilepsy and their families can take in an effort to minimize their risk: 1. People with epilepsy should make sure to take the medications prescribed for them to maximize seizure control. 2. If medicines are not effective, consider other therapies such as surgical options, dietary options, research drug trials, or or devices/technologies that may help to enable early intervention when seizure activity occurs. 3. Consider supervision or monitoring during sleep hours to identify seizure activity. 4. Lead a healthy lifestyle and keep stress to a minimum whenever possible. 5. Patients should regularly visit with their doctor, especially if convulsive seizures are not completely controlled. 6. Ensure that family members and caregivers have knowledge of seizure first aid and of emergency resuscitation measures including CPR and defibrillator use.
