Seeing an epileptic seizure can be a frightening and confusing experience, in which case you may not know how to act in the situation. However, first aid does not require any special skills, and everyone can help someone who has had an epileptic seizure.
Seizures usually last only a few minutes and pass by themselves. Hospitalization is necessary if the seizure lasts longer than 5 minutes, or if the seizures recur so frequently that the person receiving the seizure does not recover in between, or it is their first epileptic seizure.
