Epilepsy in the elderly media briefing

  • People over 65 are the fastest-growing group in America to develop epilepsy, the most common brain disorder in the world.

  • While commonly thought to affect primarily younger people, epilepsy is twice as likely to strike those 65 and older.

  • Symptoms of epilepsy can be difficult to recognize in the elderly and can include unusual sounds, blurred vision, or sudden anxiety.

  • Treating epilepsy in the elderly population can be difficult, due to age-related issues such as the potential risk of drug-drug interactions.

  • The National Council on the Aging and the Epilepsy Foundation have joined together to raise awareness of epilepsy in the elderly.
