It : It is probably true than anyone can have a seizure under the right conditions. These conditions include poisoning by prescription or recreational drugs, withdrawal from prescription or recreational drugs (including alcohol), brain injuries, general illnesses, and abnormal levels of blood salts (electrolytes -- including sodium). When people have seizures with provocation, they are not considered to have epilepsy, and usually don't require long term seizure medication. People who have a tendency to have repeated seizures with little or no provocation have epilepsy. The diagnosis is made by history, and supported by results from tests like brain-wave recordings (eegs) and brain imaging (usually mri). Epilepsy usually does require long-term use of seizure medications like depakote, or other interventions like epilepsy surgery. Taking Depakote for a provoked seizure is an unusual clinical approach. Depakote can be given for other reasons.
