I personally had uncontrolled epilepsy in my 20s for 8 years, so this is a very important issue to me.  It was ultimately cured by surgical removal of the spot in the brain from which the seizures originated.  This resulted in some peripheral vision loss on one side, but no other ill effects.  

Prior to the surgery, medications and a vagus nerve stimulator were also tried.  They did not work for me, but most people respond to medications, and some respond well to use of a vagus nerve stimulator.

I wish I had access to all the resources above.  You can comment on these resources and share additional resources in the comment box.
