In brief: Precautions

Seizure precautions include not driving until 6 months after your last seizure; taking your medication as prescribed every day, avoiding intoxication with alcohol and drugs; showering not taking baths unless someone is monitoring you, not going in a boat alone, not going swimming alone, not diving from a high board.
