Dr. Olav Jaren answered

Specializes in Neurology

Many people with temporal lobe epilepsy have partial onset seizures or complex partial seizures. Many people with this condition can be successfully treated with medication, such as lamotrigine or levetiracetam. People who cannot be treated well with medication may find it possible to obtain relief with epilepsy surgery.
