Speakers at a seminar urged all to take the epilepsy patients to hospital instead of the quack doctor after the symptom appears.

They were addressing at a seminar organised by Chattogram Medical College (CMC) Teachers Association and Neurology department marking the ‘International Epilepsy Day’ at the Dr Shah Alam Bir Uttam auditorium on Sunday.

Neurology department Head Professor Dr Md Hasanuzzaman presented the keynote paper at the scientific seminar on ‘Woman and Epilepsy Disease.’

He said there are many superstitions in the society regarding the epilepsy.

The disease can be diagnosed through the disease history and video of convulsion without costly tests, said the physician.

Some 90 percent patients stay fine only taking medicines while 60 to 70 per cent can be recovered permanently through taking medicine for two to five years, observed the physician.

He also said that the pregnant patients can remain fine after having treatment from the neurology specialists before and during the delivery.

The patient will also be able to give birth of healthy baby after having the treatment, said Dr Hasanuzzaman.
