Why should someone with epilepsy wear a MedicAlert medical ID?
If you have been diagnosed with Epilepsy, you've experienced seizures. A seizure can happen when you least expect it and without warning. When you have a seizure, it is critical for paramedics and doctors to quickly learn what medication you're taking and what your medical history is. Even if your seizure has subsided, you may be too exhausted or disoriented to tell them. MedicAlert 24-hour Emergency Hotline staff can provide paramedics with your full medical history quickly, saving precious time. Don't wait for your next seizure to take action. Take control now.
