Epilepsy “Rescue Medication” Survey results are in

Posted September 13th, 2013 by

PatientsLikeMe recently partnered with Acorda® Therapeutics to research how epilepsy patients respond to seizures using rescue medications, and we’re happy to announce that the results are in. Rescue meds are a type of medication used once a seizure starts to help end it faster or prevent further seizures.

Has there been any 24-hour period in the last 12 months when you experienced multiple seizures, despite taking your daily anti- seizure medication?

 

We’d like to thank the more than 500 PatientsLikeMe epilepsy members who participated in the survey and got us to our community goal for the study. And as promised for reaching our goal, we’ve donated $2,500 to the Epilepsy Foundation for further research.

At PatientsLikeMe, we know every piece of data, no matter how small, helps paint a better picture of what it’s like to live with a condition like epilepsy. Your contribution will help other patients learn more all while advancing medical research. Thanks for your contribution.
